Reviews - What do customers think about 100 Most Important Events in Christian History, The?

2000 years of cliff notes   Jul 14, 2007
The author begins by telling his readers that the 100 events chosen are not intended to demean other events that are not included.

This book does a fantastic job of condensing the major events of 2000 years into 200 pages. If you are looking for a "crash course" in church history, this is the one. It reminds me of 2000 years of cliff notes in one volume. Each event is given around two pages of information, which is just enough to wet your appetite to dig deeper. This is a good intro and I would recommend reading it in tandem with Church History In Plain Language or A Global History of Christians.
Marvelous  Mar 26, 2006
Marvelous how we can help to preserve our American
heritage at home, thru' books such as these. Most
schools don't have enouph about our American heritage
rooted in His Gospel of Christ Jesus; & books about
our founding fathers & mothers are seriously lacking
in how they prayed & preserved & based our early
schools on the Bible & with Hymns. Please get more
books about our founding parents. You can contact: for the right heritage info's.
Chrisitan history in 204 pages!  Apr 15, 2004
Granted, how do you pack approximately 1,970 years into two pages. There is a survey portion of information available about each of the 100 events, much as you might only recieve 1 page about Charles DeGaul in a World History textbook.

However, this book is a great jumping off point for someone who would like to study Christian history more in depth. Through the process of reading this book, you can discover people and events that particularly interest you and search deeper into those topics, rather than haphazardly grabbing a 20 volume set of Christian History and flipping.

Also, I enjoyed this book because it did not limit itself to the 100 most important PEOPLE. I enjoyed reading about the printing press, and the Spanish Inquisition, as well as Charles Spurgeon and Hudson Taylor.

*****Final Thoughts*****
This book is a great introduction to Christian history that will allow you to find events and people you want to study more in-depth. It is a great springboard for study.

A great reference book!  Feb 22, 2004
Whether you're a church scholar, a new Christian yearning to know the history of your faith, or a lover of all things historical, this book brings you everything you need!
The momentous events that have shaped Christianity since Christ's resurrection are presented in a timeline format, which makes it a smooth-flowing book. Reducing all of the world's Christianity-influenced events to "merely" 100 must have been quite a daunting task, with many notable events hitting the cutting-room floor. But I believe the choices were excellent, and the reader will be rewarded with better knowledge and a deeper understanding of Church history.
A first-rate survey  Nov 24, 2001
From the Fire in Rome in AD64 to the modern Chinese church, this book is an excellent overview of the history of the church and an excellent tool for those with little background in church history. If you're looking for a comprehensive examination of the church through the ages, this isn't the book for you - stick to Pelikan or one of the others. But if you want to see the flow of events throughout Christian history in just 200 pages, this is as good as it gets!
