Dr. Martin E. Marty, a world-renowned authority on religion and Church History, talks about the
"story" that Christians have in common with one another, and then goes on to discuss this story
the thousand-year primacy of Rome, re-forming the churches and the legacy of dissent, the
coming of Christianity to America, the rise and challenge of science and rationalism, the
expansion of the church around the world, and the new millennium.
This six-part series begins with Jesus in Galilee. Dr. Marty takes us on a 21st-century tour of
Christianity and ends by telling us that the Christian story is not yet finished, and that we are
part of the story.
may study Caesar, enjoy reading Shakespeare, listen to Beethoven
and be grateful for George Washington,but few would call themselves
Caesarites, Shakespearites, Beethovenites or Washingtonites.
They may think of these people as important and worthy of study
but none would consider them a living presence or enter eternity
with their names on their lips. Jesus Christ is different. He gives His
name to The Christian Story and is at the very heart of its plot.
He is the one who addresses us and is addressed by us and in
whose name we pray.
