This book is alright, if you don't set much store in things like historical accuracy, thoroughness, or nuanced treatment of subjects. Two stars because at least it was readable. I do not recommend as a serious or accurate source of information, but if all you have time for is a quick and dirty overview of the topic (and if you are already familiar enough with the history to know when it is misrepresented) then I suppose this would do the trick.

This is the most readable of all the church history books i've examined. It is thorough and often gives unique insights. It is a relatively easy read as history books go and the accounts will hold your interest. I would recommend this book as a great starting place for a layman wanting to study church history and it has enough depth to still be of value for those conversant in church history. ( )

Uma obra que se distingue de outras por sua clareza. Está dividido em oito partes segundo as grandes eras da igreja. O livro é atual e o autor trata dos fenômenos contemporâneos como mega-igrejas e cultos voltados para não-crentes. Ele ressalta os efeitos da mídia em massa na comunicação do evangelho no mundo e a abertura das sociedades anteriormente fechadas para o testemunho do evangelho.

This book is part of my collection that really focuses in on Biblical Commentary more than anything else (including some well known authors in the theological world). All of these books haven't been read cover to cover, but I've spent a lot of time with them and they've been helpful in guiding me through difficult passages (or if I desire to dig deeper). ( )

I'm not against apologetics books.
I'm not against Church history books written unashamedly from the Christian POV.
I'm not even against shameless mixing of the two.
I like books written in plain language.

I like good books.

This one is not. Neither is in in plain language. This is a bad book, the language is above all boring to death. What the book lacks in style, it has in abundance in bad history and pitiful apologetics. I can't understand how anyone could have read it, even on assignment. ( )

Christianity's roots go back into Jewish history long before the birth of Jesus Christ. It was Jesus of Nazareth, however, who attacked established Judaism and brought a renewal movement into history's light early in the first century. After his crucifixion under Pontius Pilate, a Roman official, Jesus' teachings spread throughout the Mediterranean area An apostle named Paul was especially influential. He stressed Go's gift of salvation for all men and thus led in Christianity's emergence from Palestinian Judaism to a position as a universal religion.

[Foreword] Years ago, as an undergraduate majoring in history I was told about an exciting professor who taught church history at Denver Seminary.
[Prologue] For years I kept a cartoon on my study door.
Christianity is the only major religion to have as its central event the humiliation of its God.
[Epilogue] Today, after 2,000 years, Christianity is the faith, at least nominally, of one-third of the earth's population.
[Foreword - 4th Edition] This book executed a noble purpose: to lead evangelical readers to engage their own story and to encounter the larger Christian world.
