Wednesday Giveaway — Church History, vol 2: From Pre-Reformation to the Present Day

Categories Theology

**UPDATE 8/16/13—The winner of this giveaway is Larry R., who said Athanasius was his favorite historic theologian, "because he was part of fighting for a key doctrine against much opposition." Thanks to every body else for sharing!

9780310257431It's been said that two things are responsible for our modern faith: the Holy Spirit and the Communion of Saints. Unfortunately, it's this last part that often gets sidelined, particularly in Evangelicalism.

While Christians are often schooled in the Bible, the fundamentals of Christian theology, and the historic hymns, the history of the Church and Her theology is often an afterthought.

Thankfully there's a new resource to help bring Church history back into the center of the Church's life—and today we're giving away a copy in our weekly Wednesday contest!

The book is Church History, Volume 2: The Pre-Reformation to the Present Day. It's an account of the ups and downs, the triumphs and struggles, of the Christian movement.

This resource offers a unique contextual view of how the Christian church spread and developed from just prior to the Reformation and through to the present-day. It looks closely at the integral link between the history of the world and that of the church, detailing the times, cultures, and events that both influenced and were influenced by the church. Which means it's ideal in the university classroom as much as it is in the Sunday classroom.

If you missed it earlier this morning, check out an excellent introductory video by author John Woodbridge as he shares why he's excited about this new resource. Then come back here to enter for a chance to win your own copy!
