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.
