This work is intended to serve as a short introduction or “primer” in the study of church history. It presents a brief history of Christianity since its beginnings in New Testament times to the present. It highlights key people, events, movements, and ideas in church history, while providing its general historical context. It also focuses on those who sought diligently to follow the apostolic faith, as well as those who courageously undertook the work of renewal, reform, and restoration. An underlying assumption of the study is that God’s plan for redemption, for discipleship, and for his church has been revealed in Scripture and was intended to be normative for ages to come.
The book is suitable for individual reading, group study, or classes in church history. Each chapter is followed by suggestions for further reading, as well as questions to stimulate reflection, discussion, and scriptural application.
