Item description for Exploring Church History: A Guide to History, World Religions, and Ethics by James P. Eckman...

Overview
The Christian faith is as complex and rich as can be, and this resource-a companion to Exploring the Bible and Exploring Theology and Apologetics-introduces the essential history and understanding that any believer will want to have. This volume includes three previously published books in one binding: Exploring Church History (2002), The Truth about Worldviews (2004), and Biblical Ethics (2004). In it, author James Eckman first walks readers through the defining moments, theological process, and institutional development of the church-from the day of Pentecost, through the Reformation and Enlightenment, and to the modern age. He then examines a variety of popular belief systems such as Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, Roman Catholicism, and specific cults, and offers, in contrast, a compelling look at Christianity's distinctives. Finally, Eckman presents the important difference between ethics and morals and suggests a modern-day ethical strategy that views hot button issues like abortion, euthanasia, bioethics, war, capital punishment, and the environment through the lens of Scripture. Each chapter is short and includes thought-provoking questions, making this a perfect book for personal or group study.
