Great Events in the Story of the ChurchBy: Hanks Geoffrey
|Publisher||Christian Focus Publications|
This book has been written for the lay person interested in furthering their understanding of the development of the Faith from its origin up to the end of the last century. It is impossible to understand where we as Christians stand today unless we have some grasp of the significant events which have determined the course of history. To gain insight into the lives of those who have gone before us and laboured , often at great personal sacrifice, to build the Church of Christ leaves us with a sense of awe and admiration. Through these real life dramas such as the birth of Islam, the invention of the printing press, the reformers and the state of Israel being reborn, we can trace the hand of God in the progress of faith and can more easily understand the reasons for what we believe.
