Highlights from Church History


The study of the history of the progress of the Christian Church is one of the most rewarding, challenging and life changing adventures.  We see God’s sovereign ability to honour His Son among the nations and reconcile multitudes to Himself by His grace. We will enjoy just some of the many examples of God’s triumphs through the centuries. We also see the continual battle between genuine faith and spiritual opposition, traditionalism, worldliness and sin. These studies are intentionally biographical in order to connect history more immediately to our own hearts and lives. As we catch some brief glimpses of heroes and heroines of previous generations let’s allow God to challenge us afresh and stir us with passion for the glory of His Name and for the blessing of many in our own day.

I do hope you will enjoy these posts as they go up. It’ll be great fun and hopefully we’ll be learning together. We’ll begin at about where the Book of Acts ends and ride the great and powerful wave of grace through the centuries to our present time. I hope you’ll bookmark this page and join me for an uplifting look at Christ’s Glorious Achievements!

    This totally rocks. By the way did you know that you can set up Facebook to import things from your blog as notes directly, then you don’t have to post them twice (that’s how I do it)…

    Anyway I’ve loved your lectures on Church History so its great to have this online (presume it’s going to be similar – it had better be!)
