The study of the history of the progress of the Christian church is one of the most rewarding, challenging and potentially life-changing adventures. The sheer magnitude of the success of Christianity is astonishing. The Christians believed this was a manifestation of God’s grace to the world.
This online project is not intended to be exhaustive, but inspirational. The aim is to revive stories from previous generations to encourage faith in our own lives.
I hope you will enjoy some of the many examples of God’s gracious interaction with people through the centuries. We’ll see the ever-present struggle between genuine faith and spiritual opposition, traditionalism, religious intolerance, and sin.
The selection of micro-histories is intentional. It’s easier to connect with a story than with a timeline.
I do hope you will enjoy these posts as they go up. We’ll be learning together. Feel free to comment or to correct if you spot an error and have a source for the correction.
We’ll begin at about where the Book of Acts ends and ride the wave of grace through the centuries to our present time. I hope you’ll bookmark this Review and join me for an uplifting look at what CH Spurgeon called Christ’s Glorious Achievements.
