Great Christian Classics contains five great narratives of the Christian faith: The Confessions of Augustine, Patrick's Confessions and Breastplate, The History of the Reformation of Religion within the Realm of Scotland, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, and The Autobiography of John G. Paton. These autobiographical works together provide an inspirational picture of the building of the Kingdom of God on earth, even in the face of danger or despair.
After each chapter, vocabulary exercises and study questions are given; essays, Bible research, and critical thinking questions are also integrated. Final exams (multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, T/F, or matching) complete each work. Answers must be written on separate paper; this is a non-consumable textbook. Answer key included in the back. 595 pages, hardcover. Ages 15 & up. Volume I of II.
There is a wealth of great literature to study in the history of man, some written by Christians and some by non-Christians. While it is important to survey the writings produced in both the city of man and the city of God, the Christian student should direct special attention to literature produced in the city of God. The empires of man will always crumble and fall, but the kingdom of Jesus Christ will continue forever. This study guide covers five of the greatest life narratives of all time. A thorough study of these great books will help the student understand the life, theology, and worldview of some of the greatest Christian men in church history. This textbook covers Augustines Confessions, Patricks Confessions, Knoxs History of the Reformation in Scotland, Bunyans Grace Abounding, and Patons missionary Autobiography.
