Product Description

This updated edition of Bruce Shelley's classic text Church History in Plain Language includes new developments within the church and its 20th Century missionary programs, discusses the impact of emerging technologies on the gospel, and explores the explosive growth of Christianity in the third world. But it also covers everything that came before--from Jesus to the martyrs, the martyrs to Augustine, and on down to the Reformation and, of course, the present day.

Incredibly reader-friendly, Shelley's book edifies, teaches and provides a clear window into the eventful history of the Christian church.

Publisher's Description

It's about time that someone wrote church history that tells about people, not just about "eras" and "ages." Church History in Plain Language taps the roots of our Christian family tree. It combines authoritative research with a captivating style to bring our heritage home to us.

    I was surprised at the quality and the features of this book considering the price that I paid. It is a very readable book that is written in such a way that it will hold your interest. I was never bored from page 1 until the last page. I learned a lot about church history - especially the early church and how different groups broke away from Roman Catholicism and why. Anyone who is interested in church history would vastly enjoy this book. I have yet to be disappointed by any product I have purchased at Christianbook.com.

    A good introductory text for Church History. One glaring omission is Zwingli.

    I am thoroughly enjoying this book. It is well written- as if a conversational lecture from a very knowledgeable source. There is a lot of material covered, though, so know that this isn't a "weekend book."

    I found this to be a very well-written book, although it took me longer than expected to finish; it seems to be wriitten more in the style of a textbook than I expected. I would recommend having a good collegiate dictionary on hand. It is a useful addition to my reference library.
