Kregel Pictorial Guide to Christian Heritage in England  Apr 19, 2002
Daniel A. Scalberg, Chairman of Historical Studies at Multnomah Bible College offers us a chronology of events in Christian history in England. Many fine photographs illustrate this text, designed for anyone that enjoys things British or is in the planning stages of a trip to that country. His book is thorough, colorful and at times quite entertaining.

The non denominational Pictorial Guide is well written, full of absorbing details, and a few tongue in cheek asides. It includes a map, bibliography, suggestions on what to wear, a few tips on etiquette and helpful translations of American slang into British slang so that you can find a loo and order chips.

This isn't always an easy read, but it's worth the effort. Anyone who enjoys the classics of literature (or watch Masterpiece Theater) would find this a welcome source to help familiarize themselves with people, places and things British in relation to the Christian church. The Guide features interior and exterior photographs of classic buildings and grounds of the likes of Cambridge University as well as absorbing historical facts about various cities such as Canterbury and Ely.

Scalberg has spent the last twenty years making what he refers to as "pilgrimages" and escorting tours of England to explore the spiritual ancestry of the Church. I had no idea when I began reading this book that England was once an "insignificant missionary outpost under Roman rule".

The book is divided into three sections. The first chapter provides a chronological description of the entire of English church history. The author explains that due to economic hard times in Rome, troops were encouraged to settle in England permanently after serving as part of the conquering army. He then proceeds with an extensive overview the people and politics that contributed to the Church as it is today.

Section two focuses on the geographic centers of Christianity in England, relying heavily on full color photographs. The final section offers biographical sketches of John Wesley, Elizabeth I, Sir Thomas More, William Wiberforce, Dorothy Sayers, C.S. Lewis and the Venerable Bede. The majority of these people are familiar names in our culture but Scalberg explores their backgrounds and individual contributions to the Christian church.

Recommended.
