In today’s world we find many
books written about Christianity, not only for the beginner
student but also for the specialist. Furthermore, there are
hundreds of helpings tools for the student of the Bible; we
have biographies, commentaries, dictionaries, encyclopedias
just to mention a few.
Therefore, the reason for this book, it is written with the
purpose of teaching the basic divisions within main stream Christianity.
Christianity has been divided since its beginnings. And yet,
at the beginning of the XXI century, many believers do not know
what the official dogmas of their respective churches are. Many
members claim to be Christians, and most of them, are ignorant
of their own faith in relationship to the official discourses
of their own denominations.
Ramifications of Christianity attempts to present
in a very basic language the main differences between some of
the main denominations of Christianity. It is not an exhaustive
study, there are many denominations that are not included. Nevertheless,
it attempts to cover over two thousand years of history with
a comprehensive style that will help the student, whether serious
or not, to comprehend in a coherent way, the sometimes complex
discipline of the study of Christianity.
Written by David Alberto Muñoz,
an ex-minister, who is professor of Philosophy and Religious
Studies at Chandler-Gilbert Community College in the state
of Arizona , and Associate professor of Religious Studies at
Arizona State University , Ramifications
of Christianity promises to be a helping tool to anyone
who is interested in the study of Christianity. It encompasses
the profundity of an ideology that has dominated the Western
World with the simplicity of a speech that can be understood.
