A History of Christianity

God In The Dock
Season 1 Episode 6 The History Channel December 19, 2016

Scepticism has transformed Western culture and transformed Christianity. Where did this religious doubt come from? Is fading belief due to the advance of science and reason, or due to its entanglement with world wars, Fascism and Nazism? However, in the middle of this crisis, the Church has nonetheless rediscovered deep and enduring truths about itself, and these may even hold clues to its future.
