Sketches from Church History
An Illustrated Account of 20 Centuries of Christ's Power
Paperback. 256 Pages
This book outlines the thrilling story of the onward march of the Church of Christ from the earliest times to the end of the nineteenth century. It is not a dry-as-dust account of long-forgotten events and controversies, but rather a moving record of those who undertook the adventure of faith before us and, through their courage and steadfastness, left an example for the church in every age. Reading of the exploits of those who have gone before us, through times of prosperity and times of persecution, should stimulate, warn and encourage the church in our own age to persevere in the same path, and obtain the same everlasting reward.
If you are looking for a concise history of the Christian church then this is the book to read. The author provides enough information to grasp the culture of each age but he does not get so technical that you quickly lose interest. For anyone who has a passion to study church history I would recommend to start with this book and dive deeper into a particular era that grabs your attention.
