    As pastor of a small congregation, many were wanting to know more of the history between the 1st century and today. As a student who has been through seminary, I wanted a concise study that would bridge the gap. This study, conducted by Dr. Timothy Paul Jones was exactly what we needed. It is an entertaining and informative, conservative study on those years. The study is broken down in such a way as to give the reader/student informative and applicable insight into the troubles of the church from the 1st century to today. Many resources are recommended during the study to give interested students further recommendations. I have graduated from seminary, with a B.A. in Biblical studies and a Masters of Divinity and this study manages to condense this information into 12 weeks. I would highly recommend this to any student needing a refresher and any layperson interested in learning more of how the church came to where she is today. Great product!

    I was SO looking forward to using this DVD series with our small group that meets in our home, but was sadly disappointed. The author/presenter has an engaging and enjoyable style, he comes across as very personable and knowledgeable, but he speaks too fast, and seems to highlight random events and people in the time period he is covering. The result is a largely disjointed presentation. The accompanying book (an optional purchase) provides an outline for notetaking and contains additional information beyond the lecture, but even that lacks important events, features, and people. I think the presentation would have been greatly enhanced with even a simple timeline graphic, perhaps highlighting the era being covered in each lesson, and some kind of explanation, even a very brief one, of why certain things are covered while others are not. For instance, the Gutenberg Press is mentioned very briefly, and no mention at all that the first printing was of a Bible... or why that was an important event in the development of Christian thought and practice. I had hoped to finish the course with a better understanding of the development of the Church overall and the people and events that contributed to that, but while there were some interesting things I learned about, I didn't get a sense of the whole. The rest of our group had the same impression. The last two lessons were the most enjoyable with a call to a deeper and more personal commitment to reaching the world with the message of the gospel.
