                If we want to understand ourselves and our churches, we need to know where we've been. Despite rising Darwinism, growing liberalism, a wave of revivalism, and many other tremendous challenges, the 19th century was a time of fervent missionary endeavor and a growing Church.

                • The Intellectual Scene
                • Two American Revolutions

                • Charles Finney

                The twentieth century witnessed the rise and fall of empires, as well as the vast growth of the church through world missions. In many ways, the twentieth century contains the best and worst of human history.

                In Part 6 of the 6-part A Survey of Church History DVD series, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey considers the development of the church in the modern world, even as world wars, social revolutions, and doctrinal controversies threatened its expansion. Though the church met many challenges in this century, Christ continued to build His church as His gospel spread throughout the world.
