Informative, well-written, and interesting as far as that goes, but this book is from a distinctly Reformed point of view. It takes a very dim view of Arminians (except for perhaps the Wesleys) and Anabaptists. Not all of us believe that God would damn babies to hell "just because", so for those who aren't TULIPs, another church history book (such as The Pilgrim Church) would be better for you.For many of us, John Calvin was a murderer more than he was a "courageous" man of God.
An excellent synopsis. Deals with all of the major events of church history and the streams in secular history that affected them. An excellent tool for personal study, and in the hands of a learned teacher this would be great for a class textbook. We are using it in our adult and Senior High Christian Education curriculum in our EPC church.
If you are looking for a book on Church History but you do not have time to read thick volumes and historical works, this is the recommended book to read (The other one is by B.K. Kuiper on "The Church in History"). In short, it is a very thought provoking book that greatly evokes your gratitude to God for His Providence and Protection on His Church - the Bride of the Lamb of God
