✏Church History Book Summary : One of the chief difficulties in studying the history of Christianity is the lack of prior exposure to the subject that students often bring with them. Struggling to keep up with the large numbers of names, dates, and places presented to them, it is easy for students to lose sight of the "big picture," the broad sweep of movement and change that instructors most wish to communicate. Justo Gonzalez has written this book to help students gain just such a quick and basic grasp of the main periods and issues in the history of Christianity. Drawing upon his own extensive experience and that of others, he contends that having been introduced to the essentials of church history in a brief and accessible form, students are far better able to understand and appreciate what they encounter in more detailed lectures and reading. Gonzalez provides a comprehensive opening chapter that summarizes major issues and concerns of each of the principal eras of church history. Subsequent chapters focus on the ancient church, the Christian empire, the Middle Ages, the Reformation, the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries, and the twentieth century and the end of modernity.

✏One Faith Many Transitions Book Summary : Church history reads like a wartime romance tragedy with the promise of a happy ending. For the church is called Christ's Bride' in Scripture. One Faith Many Transitions snapshots the pathos, defeat and victory of the heroes and villains in historic Christianity. It exposes world-views that have both aided and distorted the faith over the centuries, and how God's Spirit brings churches back into living relationship with him. It explores why Christians thought and acted as they did. Written in a way that takes the Bible seriously as a message system from the living God, One Faith analyzes historic ideas and events from a basically Evangelical perspective. It will boost the faith and historic understanding of any Christian who believes the Bible really is the word of God and the standard for church authority. It also highlights many of the crucial world-view issues Christians face today and how they arose.

✏From Jerusalem to You Book Summary : From Jerusalem to You shows and tells how the Gospel spread from Jerusalem to you. With the help of thirty-six maps, you will be able to trace the exciting story of the spread of Christianity and find your place in that story. When Jesus predicted the spread of his kingdom, he told the parable of the mustard seed and plant. Beginning as a tiny seed, it rapidly grows to be a large bush that covers the ground. It even welcomes wild birds to come and make their nests in it. Nearly two thousand years later, we can now look back and trace the growth of Christianity from that tiny seed in Jerusalem to becoming the global tree of today with all its many branches. We need to take our place as a leaf in that tree and then trace our heritage through its branches, trunk, and, finally, to its original seed. Only then will our life gain purpose, and only then will history have meaning. Taking this trip through history, you will meet many courageous and dedicated followers of Jesus who dedicated their lives so that you also can be a part of God's global kingdom. You will also hear the voice of Jesus saying, "Go to the peoples of all the world and share the good news with everyone, and I will always be with you."
