Publisher's Description

What can Christians today learn from the moral chaos of the past?


Overview


As Peter T. Chattaway notes in his review, Ridley Scott s epic Kingdom of Heaven immerses viewers in one of the darkest eras in Christian history the Crusades. This centuries-long series of wars involving Western Christians, Eastern Christians, Jews, and Muslims is often cited as incontrovertible evidence of the danger of religious belief, but the Crusades were hardly a simple battle between tolerance and terrorism. Motives were mixed on all sides, and the signs of the times yielded confusing messages.


What can Christians learn about human nature from looking at church history? What can we learn from the Crusades about doing the will of God? How do events of the past shape our lives today, particularly in the area of Christian-Muslim relations? These are the questions we ll explore in this study.
