How do we begin to grasp the action played out on such a gigantic screen? This book is the ideal place to start. D. Jeffrey Bingham has skillfully selected key people and episodes from Christian history to tell a grand and humbling story. From Roman persecution to the early creeds, from the monastic movement to the Reformation, from the rise of liberalism to missionary expansion, he chronicles the ups and downs of a people and a faith. This pocket history has been crafted for students, pastors and other busy people who want an informed, clear and concise presentation that feeds the mind and moves the heart. It is an account that nurtures the Christian virtues of faith, hope, and love. For Bingham aims not only to uncover the treasures of the church's past but to show how history aids us in our own spiritual journeys today.
