All Christian sects share a belief in the divinity of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe came to Earth to redeem humanity. This book provides the history of Christianity, and explains how the current divisions in the faith occurred. It also provides information about the beliefs shared by most Christians, details the major sects, and explores festivals and holy days.The MAJOR WORLD RELIGIONS series provides information about six of the most important religious faiths practiced around the world.
