  1. Point Christianity has led a long and varied past Understanding the big picture of this past will help us to appreciate and critique our present.Path Gonz lez gives the big picture through summaries and generalizations The book begins with an overview which is used as the outline for the rest of the book He has divided the book into nine chapters 1 Ancient Church 2 Christian Empire 3 Early Middle Ages 4 High Point of the Middle Ages 5 Late Middle Ages 6 Conquest and Reformation 7 17th 18th Centu [...]


  2. Church History, An Essential Guide by theological historian, Justo L Gonzalez is a very good introduction to the history of Christian churches in the context of concurrent political history One also has the assurance that the work will, as far as it goes, be very accurate, as the author has also written several full length histories of both Christian churches and Christian theology Therefore, this book is a condensation of well received longer volumes.This history walks the fine line between pol [...]

  5. This actually looks like a very good little text, giving a very short whirl through 2000 odd years of church history I m no expert on the topic, but it s clearly presented and seems to hit the major points Given its brevity and its origins, it s perhaps not surprising that it focusses mainly on the western Christian churches, or that some are complaining that it misrepresents their own elements of the church Going by the author s own statements, the intent was to provide a brief guide to orienta [...]
