The Triumph of Christianity, by Rodney Stark, is a readable, accessible and thought-provoking overview of 20 centuries of Christianity. In this volume, Stark—a well-known sociologist of religion—summarizes and distills much of his previous research and thinking. On page after page, he uses empirical data and clear-headed reasoning to challenge widely held—but regularly inaccurate or uninformed—preconceptions about both the history of Christianity, as well as its place in the world today. Highly, highly recommended
