Product Description

Church History, Volume 2: From Pre-Reformation to the Present Day examines the rise and growth of the church in its cultural, intellectual and political context.

Offering a rich contextual view of how the Christian church spread and developed, Church History authors Frank James and John Woodbridge also emphasize that the church's life did not occur in a vacuum, but at specific times in certain places, within cultures that were both influenced by and influenced the church.

This second volume displays the growth of the church from just prior to the Reformation through the next five hundred plus years into the present. Filled with maps, charts, and illustrations, it is an account of the ups and downs, the triumphs and struggles, of the Christian movement and offers previously unavailable perspective and approach to church history that understands history as a big picture full of life and events.

Designed to fully integrate all of the senses in learning, this book makes an excellent text for students to not only retrieve information from, but to experience history.

Publisher's Description

Church history is the story of the greatest community the world has known and the greatest movement in world history. Yet, just as the biblical record of the people of God is the story of a mixed people with great acts of faith and great failures in sin and unfaithfulness, so is the history of the people who have made up the church down through the ages.

 

Church History, Volume Two is an account of the ups and downs, the triumphs and struggles, of the Christian movement. It offers a unique contextual view of how the Christian church spread and developed from the just prior to the Reformation and through the next five-hundred-plus years into the present-day. This book looks closely at the integral link between the history of the world and that of the church, detailing the times, cultures, and events that both influenced and were influenced by the church.

 

Filled with maps, charts, and illustrations, gives primary attention to the history of Christianity in the West (western Europe and North America), but given the global and ecumenical environment of the twenty-first century, it also covers Africa, eastern Europe, Asia, and Latin America.
