by 10 authors Ludlow, James M., Locke, Clinton, Vincent, Marvin R., DuBose, William Porcher, Walker, Williston, Wells, Charles L., Van Dyke, Paul, Bartlet, James Vernon, Clark, William, Waterman, Lucius
This collection presents detailed works by nineteenth-century writers describing 10 distinct eras of church history—from the missionary journeys of Paul to the Anglican Reformation. When it was released, the Ten Epochs of Church History series addressed a burgeoning sense of historic inquiry that marked that time period. Unlike the scholarly histories that came before, these fascinating accounts were written in hopes of engaging parishioners of all ages and backgrounds.
Volume one begins in AD 29 with the work of the apostle Paul and the first missionary journeys to Europe and Asia. The series continues with descriptions of Eusebius, Clement, and several other Church Fathers, as well as ecumenical councils that addressed major doctrinal issues throughout the Post-Apostolic age. Next, the influences of both Charlemagne and Hildebrand are examined followed by a detailed description of the Crusades. The informative yet accessible tone continues in volumes on the Renaissance, Great Western Schism, Reformation, and Anglican Reformation.
Before its publication, few church documents offered impartial, engaging historical narratives for the churchgoer. This collection presents both detailed factual information and the perspectives of prominent theologians of the time on that history—a valuable combination for any modern reader or scholar. The Logos edition makes this resource even more relevant, saving you time and strengthening your study.
