Christian History in Seven Sentences

A Small Introduction to a Vast Topic
  • By Jennifer Woodruff Tait
Product Description

The history of the Christian church is a fascinating story. Since the ascension of Jesus and the birth of the church at Pentecost, the followers of Christ have experienced persecution and martyrdom, established orthodoxy and orthopraxy, endured internal division and social upheaval, and sought to proclaim the good news to the end of the earth. How can we possibly begin to grasp the complexity of the church's story? In this brief volume, historian Jennifer Woodruff Tait provides a primer using seven sentences to introduce readers to the sweeping scope of church history. Among the sentences:

  • No one whatsoever should be denied the opportunity to give his heart to the observance of the Christian religion. --The Edict of Milan (AD 313)
  • Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten not made, of one substance from the Father. --The Nicene Creed (325)
  • When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, 'Repent, ' he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance. --Martin Luther's Ninety-Five Theses (1517)
  • The church is confronted today, as in no preceding generation, with a literally worldwide opportunity to make Christ known. --The Edinburgh Conference (1910)

Pick up and read. The story continues.
