Item description for Heroes And Heretics: Pivotal Moments on the 20 Centuries of Church by Iain D. Campbell...

Overview
For the Christian, history is rich with meaning because we believe in a God who is intimately involved with his creation. Throughout time we see God's sovereign, caring and chastising hand at work to bring about the spread of the gospel and then the recreation of a new universe. One that will once more be in balance and sin is banished to plague us no more. If God is real, and involved, then history bears his fingerprints. Many people profess to be ignorant of church history but to remain so is to be ignorant of God. So many problems we face are eased by the lessons of history, especially church history. If we ignore history then we can't see what God is doing! Iain Campbell has set out a lively and absorbing summary of history, one century at a time. The result entices you into the great sweeping themes of history that show God at work through his church. Martyn Lloyd-Jones said that "It is always essential for us to supplement our reading of theology with the reading of church history... If we do not, we shall be in danger of becoming abstract, theoretical and academic in our view of truth; and, failing to relate it to the practicalities of life and daily living, we shall soon be in trouble."

Reviews - What do customers think about Heroes And Heretics: Pivotal Moments on the 20 Centuries of Church?

Excellent primer to begin studying church history!  Jul 21, 2004
Twenty centuries of church history sounds like a lot to learn. Where do you start? Can you really get a handle on the whole scope of church history without reading giant reference books? The Rev. Dr. Iain D. Campbell has provided a wonderful new book for anyone who is interested in beginning to learn about church history.

As the author says, "Church history is important because there we see the outworking of God's truth in man's life, truth for life, theology that cannot be divorced from the events that shape our thinking and our living." (pp. 12). Dr. Campbell has provided a great resource for a believer to begin exploring this important area of study.

According to the author, the chapters were originally 1/2 hour Sunday School lessons done at his church. Each chapter covers one century of church history. The chapters are short, concise, and yet very interesting. Dr. Campbell has also included helpful user-friendly charts and graphs, and each chapter begins with a short list of key dates in that century. The book is relatively short (192 pages), and easy to read. The author also provides a list of books for further reading (with his comments about each) if someone wants to learn more about church history after finishing this book. If the old adage is true that 'those who don't learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them', than I urge anyone who cares about the Christian faith and the Lord's church to grab this book, and see how the Lord has worked through history (or more accurately, His-story).
