Publishers Description
For readers who want a brief yet reliable introduction to the history of the early church as well as for those who are looking for a quick review of the period, this volume furnishes a concise overview of the key events, figures, controversies, and councils essential for a proper understanding of the first seven centuries of the Christian church. Harry R. Boer provides background on the world into which the church was born, surveys the life of the church from the ministry of Jesus until 600 A.D., examines the effects of persecution and heresy on the church, explains the role of several key church leaders, and focuses specifically on the church's ongoing struggle to formulate proper doctrines of the Trinity and of Christ. Each chapter is clearly outlined and concludes with several discussion questions that enhance the book's use as a study guide for church groups or as a text in courses on early church history.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Short History of the Early Church?

A Good intro but leaves out important facts  Nov 18, 2003
I like the style. The contents in outline form, maps and capsule coverage of each topic.

The Nicene Creed should have been covered and the argument with the Filioque clause.

Some discussion of the Liturgy would have been nice and its similarity to the Jewish Service.

A quick rundown on church history during the first century  Feb 12, 1999
Consise but informative review of events.

Lacks referencing and a detailed description of the author and his ability to write on the subject.

All in all a good starting point for those interested in the events and people of the early christian? Church.
