Publisher's Description

Choose your heroes carefully
Church history is full of unlikely heroes, regular people who saw something lacking in the body of believers and set out to develop it. Most of them—Augustine, Francis of Assisi, Martin Luther, and others—didn’t intend to go down in the books as heroes. They were just trying to be faithful to God. Like us, they wanted to see renewal in the church. And like us, they struggled with very human thoughts, emotions, and actions. We can learn from these heroes of the faith and make better choices for our own lives, if we just look at their history.

TH1NK Books presents History: Think for Yourself About What Shaped the Church, a short introduction to a few of the people who desired reform in the church. Look at their great ideas and achievements, and then learn from their mistakes and ethical lapses. Watch them wrestle with the tension between reason and faith and see that even when people messed up, the Holy Spirit was never outwitted.

    Dr. Hughes (or Dr. Bob as he prefers) is an awesome professor of Church History. I have enjoyed his books and teaching very much. Take it from someone who has spent a fair amount of time under his teaching, he is passionate about this subject; and his writing style is anything but boring! Awesome book for anyone wanting to know a little more about our roots.
