In taking fire upon the earth as the guiding metaphor for the story of Christianity in world history, this book attempts to do justice to the images multifaceted implications. Friends, enemies, and neutral observers have judged the story of Christianity to be one of amazing creativity and terrible destruction, of fearless accomplishments and grim failures. . . . Whatever else there is to be said, Christianity has left its mark on the world as surely as any fire. And the story and the mark form the subject of this book.
