A Beginners Guide to Church History by Philip Parsons and published by Day One Publications.
‘A Beginner’s Guide to Church History’ aims to provide an overview of the history of the Christian Church from its beginnings in New Testament times right up to the present day. It is a broad-brush view of the whole Christian era, and highlights major events, movements and trends.
It also includes brief biographical sketches of some of the leading characters used by God to bring the kingdom of Christ to where it is today. The main focus is on ‘Evangelicals’, who have the primary claim on the name Christian. As well as being a narrative of historical facts, brief assessment is often included of the importance and relevance of those facts.
This book could provide a basic resource for College and Seminary students, be helpful for older children in Christian families, as well as those with some interest in the subject who would struggle with larger reference works.
