Product Description

Perhaps no other time period has been so profoundly marked by sheer intensity of conflict—between traditions and within traditions—as that spanning from the 16th to the 18th century. The exciting times of learning and discover that stretched the boundaries of accepted thought amidst the Renaissance and Reformation had left in their wake a period of universal uncertainty that turned the centuries-old status quo on its head.

Nick Needham's 2,000 Years of Christ's Power: The Age of Religious Conflict, the fourth of a multiple volume series on the history of the church, covers roughly the period between 1560 to 1740. It presents a time from which English Protestantism, Scottish Presbyterianism, and French Catholicism, to name a few, were birthed and refined. Academically reliable, but written with an easy, even humorous style which makes it accessible to anybody with an interest, this work falls in a category all of its own, detailing an era within church history that has profoundly and directly impacted the characteristics of our own period of history.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

What makes the books so useful is that in a non-technical (but not simplistic) way, they bring out the main story line of the history of the church through the centuries. But in addition, and most helpfully, each chapter concludes with a selection of writings (translated of course!) from people discussed in the chapter. This means that we are not only told what certain people believed, but we are able to read some of their actual writings -- and this is often extremely illuminating.

—Martin K. Bussey, Lecturer in theology, Africa International University, Kenya

It is a brave historian who tackles the extremely challenging task of writing the 2,000-year history of the Church. Well, Nick Needham has more than risen to the challenge. This eagerly-awaited fourth volume has been well worth the wait and, not to pressure our brother scholar, we now look forward to the concluding volume!

—Michael A. G. Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

For many years now I have said: if you want a thorough, learned but accessible and well-written history of the church, read Nick Needham's 2,000 Years of Christ's Power. Now, with the fourth volume finally available, Christians have an excellent resource for improving their knowledge of the history of their faith. Highly recommended.

—Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Nick Needham's volumes on church history explain everything that someone new to the subject might not understand. At the same time, they achieve a depth of detail to interest those who already know something of the subject. We use them as standard texts at LTS and look forward eagerly to forthcoming volumes.
