Reviews - What do customers think about The Church in History?
History From and RC Perspective Mar 25, 2004
Kuiper calls himself a reformer but he does a carefully worded job of making the Reformation look like a mistake. According to him both Romanists and Protestants are linked by the Creeds. He calls the Latin Vulgate "Jerome's noblest achievement". Martin Luther attributed much of the errors in the Roman Catholic Church to Jerome and Origen, but Kuiper leaves such "tidbits" of important information out. If you want to return to Rome and have "historical precedent" from the RC perspective for doing so, this is the book for you.
A captivating read of Church History Oct 26, 2003
There are few history books that I have found to be as accurate and interesting as this one. Kuiper helps the reader look at history through the lens of the Bible, that God's Church is screwed up, and yet will prevail blameless at Christ's return. He does have a solid reformed perspective, that I respect and agree with. This book is at the 6th grading level. It's easy to understand and very interesting. He brings the saints stories to life. The maps and timelines are very helpful. If you are interested in having a greater understanding of the church today, you must understand where it came from. History is not dead and boring, yet alive, fascinating, and applicable to the Christian.
