Item description for The Story of the Christian Church by Jesse Lyman Hurlbut...
Overview In vivid and warm evangelical style, Dr. Hurlbut tells the story of the mightiest institution the human race has ever known. He traces the six general periods of church history from A.D. 30 to the present day.
Publishers Description No institution has spanned more centuries and more continents than the Christian church. Its dramatic story is one of bloodshed and peace, corruption and purity. Here Dr. Hurlbut retells this story in an objective, concise, and clear style, emphasizing the spirit of the church, its growth and maturation, and the causes leading to historic events and their resulting influence. Accurate, up-to-date, and vividly presented, Hurlbut's Story of the Christian Church traces the six general periods of church history from A.D. 30 to the present day. A concluding section, covering the period since Dr. Hurlbut's death, has been added in this revised edition, thus giving the reader a complete, easily understood overview of the Christian church. Designed for two audiences, this book contains outlines and references in the margins to aid the student or teacher along with a continuous narrative and numerous illustrations for the general reader. It is ideal for Sunday school use, since it includes suggested outlines and review questions for each chapter at the end of the book.

Reviews - What do customers think about Story Of The Christian Church?
Biased, weak and with little use, but concise Jul 27, 2006
I read this book here in Brazil.I'm an agronomist and I like to read books. This book has an obvious anti-catholic bias.About the popes who were murdered by their catholic faith, there's nothing.The enormous failures of famous protestants such as Luther (anti-semithism and racism), Henry VIII (madness, womanizer, etc.), etc. have no place on this book.Even about the founder of pentecostalism , the pastor Charles Fox Parham who was an eugenicist, pedophile, gay and racist, there's no place in this book. The anti-catholic bias is obvious.No defects are showed, among famous protestant founders.In fact, 100% of great protestants had enormous defects. The best chapter of this book is about Islam.Showing Islam as a result of a weak easter christianity,in a chapter. This book has some very little utility.
