Publisher's Description

Since publication of the first edition in 1918, A History of the Christian Church by Williston Walker has enjoyed outstanding success and recognition as a classic in the field. Written by an eminent theologian, it combines in its narrative a rare blend of clarity, unity, and balance. In light of significant advances in scholarship in recent years, extensive revisions have been made to this fourth edition. Three scholars from Union Theological Seminary in New York have incorporated new historical discoveries and provided fresh interpretations of various periods in church history from the first century to the twentieth. The result is a thoroughly updated history which preserves the tenor and structure of Walker's original, unparalleled text.

B. degree from Amherst College in 1883, was graduated from Hartford Theological Seminary in 1886 and received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Leipzig in 1888.

    Liberal view of church history

    I was disappointed with this book because I did not realize at the time that I bought it that it has a very liberal bent throughout. The forth edition has been revised extensively be folks at the Union Theological seminary, which Wikipedia identifies as the bastion of liberal Christian scholarship. It definitely shows in this work. For example it says that the new testament as we have it evolved over the first few centuries and was influenced by events and philosophies during that time. It also says that Jesus never clearly identified himself as the messiah.

    On the plus side, it is well written and covers an amazingly long period of time in a relatively short book. It covers several areas that I was interested in like the rise of the papacy and the fall of orthodoxy.

    So if you are of the liberal bent, even to the Unitarian extreme, this book may be for you. It is not for me.
