This is a pocket book of 99 pages which gives you an overview of 20 Centuries of Church History. I think it’s a magnificent piece of work and we can use this in church life. You can read a century of church history while you’re waiting for the bus or in the bathroom.
The little book grew out of Sinclair Ferguson’s pulpit ministry and Joel Beeke and Michael Haykin have developed it. As they say in their preface “hundreds of important names and events in church history must be omitted. What is recorded will shed light on how Christ has gathered his Church by his Word and Spirit, over the past two thousand years, despite the sins and errors of many theologians and the churches.”
It’s the ideal kind of book to get youth groups reading church history or for a book of the term for the congregation. It functions as a wonderful brief introduction to church history. I can’t recommend it highly enough!.
