22 Christian Stories Your Pastor Never Told You

Take flight

Over the course of 2,000 years, Christianity has spread to every corner of the world. According to the Pew Research Center, there are 2.4 billion Christians in the world, a staggering 33% of the entire world population—and that’s just today. That figure doesn’t account for the billions of others who have followed Christ over the last 20 centuries.

The lives of the billions of people who have followed Christ throughout history together form the Christian story. Many chapters from that story we’ve heard time and again—Martin Luther and his 95 theses; Athanasius’ fight for doctrinal purity; John Wesley’s prolific ministry. But thousands of fascinating tales are just waiting to be celebrated and explored.
