Book Overview
In this popular introduction to church history, now in its third edition, Mark Noll isolates key events that provide a framework for understanding the history of Christianity. The book presents Christianity as a worldwide phenomenon rather than just a Western experience. Now organized around fourteen key moments in church history, this well-received text provides contemporary Christians with a fuller understanding of God as he has revealed his purpose through the centuries. This new edition includes a new preface; updates throughout the book; revised further readings for each chapter; and two new chapters, including one spotlighting Vatican II and Lausanne as turning points of the recent past. Students in academic settings and church adult education contexts will benefit from this one-semester survey of Christian history.
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover This new edition of Mark Noll's classic introduction to church history isolates fourteen key moments that provide a framework for understanding the history of Christianity. This version includes a new preface, updates throughout the book, revised further readings for each chapter, and two new chapters. Study questions are included. Praise for previous editions This highly recommended work provides a thoughtful yet comprehensive framework for the history of Christianity. -- George Westerlund , Library Journal Noll's treatment of the material is evenhanded, engaging, and illuminating. This will be a useful text for readers seeking a historical framework within which to understand their Christian faith. -- Publishers Weekly An informative and inspiring survey of the history of Christianity designed for the general reader. . . . A thoughtful introduction to the two millennia of Christian history. -- Richard V. Pierard , Church History Noll's emphasis on historical significance allows him to range well beyond the institutional and doctrinal matters that dominate traditional church history surveys. . . . A valuable text for church study groups and college-level, one-semester surveys of church history. -- James A. Patterson , Journal of Church and State Noll has pulled off a historical tour de force , giving his readers a sense of the overall story of Christianity while neither getting bogged down in the details, nor resorting to oversimplification. . . . [This book is] very helpful in introducing beginning students to the broad sweep of historical events. More knowledgeable students will enjoy it as well, as they ponder the reasons for Noll's choices and his assessment of the events he describes. -- Donald L. Huber , Trinity Seminary Review Mark Noll's survey of key movements in the two millennia of Christianity is well written and judiciously selected. The book is designed for the relative newcomer to church history and would be an interesting read for the oft cited 'educated person in the pew.'. . . A fair and interesting historical survey, attempting to do right by all brands of Christians. -- Tim Bradshaw , Themelios
