24"x36" Color Map
The Spread of the Gospel Map is a powerful visual depiction of the most important movement in history: the spread of Christianity. Charting the geographic progress of the Gospel over the last 2,000 years, this map shows the missionary journeys of the apostles, the outposts of the early church, the hotbeds of persecution, the staging grounds of the Church’s major theological battles, and more. Be reminded of the power of the Gospel to transform “every nation and tribe and language and people,” and be inspired by the legacies of the brave brothers and sisters who faithfully carried the Gospel of Christ to the farthest ends of the earth.
How far did the Church spread in the first century? Who took the Gospel to Ukraine in the AD 60s? Ethiopia in the 4th century? China in the 7th century? Greenland in the 11th century? What was happening with Christianity in the 300s? 600s? 900s? How long did it take the gospel to reach Alaska? How about South America? And much more!
This beautiful full-color chart features two different maps, a 2,000-year timeline with crucial dates in Christian history to put it all in linear perspective, and 12 sidebars describing the history of the Church across different continents and eras. White lines show the reach of the Church in every century, and markers pinpoint the locations of key missionaries. Use this map as a launching pad for further study into the spread of the Gospel and the ongoing story of the Great Commission. A beautiful visual reminder that “the word of the truth, the gospel, which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world… is bearing fruit and increasing.” (Colossians 1:6) The only map of its kind, this is a resource that you, your children, and your students shouldn’t be without.
