Item Description...
Tracing events and individuals that have shaped the Christian church from its beginnings to the 20th century, this accessible reference will encourage you to live in the present by learning from the past. Arranged chronologically by era, chapters feature lists of key dates, period introductions, overviews of pivotal events, biographical sketches, extracts from Christian writings, and more.

Publishers Description

Each chapter begins with a list of the dates of important events in that period, followed by an introduction to the period. Then the pivotal events of the period are mentioned, and an overview discusses these events and their impact on the Church.

Biographical sketches introduce the key people of the period, while extracts from Christian writings of the time, on topics ranging from doctrines and descriptions of historical events to devotional and Bible studies, offer a deeper understanding of the issues and struggles of real people just like us. Each chapter ends with a discussion of important translations of the Bible.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Concise, yes, but ...  Jul 13, 2009
I am a church history buff, and I was excited about a new one which would be "concise." However, I was disappointed in several areas. Yes, the book covered the entire scope of church history down to the present time. It included many events and personalities which shaped the Church. There was a wealth of documentary examples to show how Christian thought developed through the ages. However, I must say that the book failed on several fronts:

1. I was amazed to find a published book with as many typographical and grammatical errors as appeared in this work. It shows a serious lack of editing. It seems as if most of the work was the result of a poor attempt at scanning and editing. Scanners are notorious for misspelling or misinterpreting, so the author/editor must thoroughly examine the finished product. Such poor editing is not worthy of a major work such as this.

2. Much of the documentary evidence is unnecessary or lengthy. There are long passages by church fathers that are tedious at best. Short passages would have served the purpose just as well.

3. The editor includes/excludes personalities and events that were more or less important to church history. for example, he includes Dr. Martin Luther King, who was essential to the American civil rights movement, but not to church history per se. He includes obscure people, such as brother Roger of Taize.

4. Much of the author's material was gleaned from Internet resources, such as Wikipedia. Some of the information from this web site is incomplete or erroneous. He should have researched more respected authors. To his credit, he did use Philip Schaff and a number of original documents. But the way he flits back and forth to unreliable sources is not to his credit.

5. To my mind the material within each section isn't organized very well, but that may be my personal preferences.

Overall, I cannot recommend this book. There are many other books on church history which are better organized and show more thorough editing.
