"This book makes church history come alive by presenting engaging portraits of twelve major figures whose lives, writings, and theologies still have a formative influence on Christian faith today. Read the book and take the tour. It is a sacred journey you won't forget."

"Pages From Church History is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a first book on Christian history and thought. In twelve well chosen studies, Stephen Nichols introduces Christian classics by such towering men of faith as Augustine, Luther, Bunyan, and Bonhoeffer.

    This summer I started reading another book by Stephen J. Nichols titled Pages From Church History. The book starts with an introduction about why we should care about history. I love this quote on page 13-14 "Without meaningful connections to the past, the soul does not grow deep, but constricts, growing more and more shallow. As many have observed, our age tends to be consumed with the present, the new, and even the future...There also lurks, however, a downside, as this tendency can lead to a certain ahistoricism, a sentiment that tells us the past is of little relevance and may be handily brushed aside." On page 14-15 Nichols then goes on to write, "Studying the past offers meaningful connections with our legacy. We are enriched through our study of the past, simultaneously humbled by testimonies of courage and emboldened by reflections of God's grace and faithfulness..Church history not only inspires, it also instructs."From the introduction, Nichols begins the first chapter with a brief look at church history. Though brief, it is packed full of information and food for thought. After the first chapter, there are twelve chapters about different figures that are significant in the history of the church. Some of them I knew and others I didn't. But, even if I knew the name of the person, I learned as I read the chapters how much I truly didn't understand about that person and their place in history.If you find yourself looking for a wonderful, interesting, and engaging book about church history, I would highly recommend this book. It would be great also for a high schooler who is being homeschooled. You'd definitely want to discuss it and read it together, but this book is very easy to understand.Please note that I was given a complimentary copy of this book from P&R Publishing for review.
