Great companion book Nov 8, 2006
I was assigned Readings in World Christian History as textbook for a class at the Perkins School of Theology. The book is a compilation of historical documents, preceded by short introductions that place the documents in context and tell why they are important.
If you are reading this, you are probably interested in church history. If you really want to get into the subject, you will need this book or another one like it.
Excellent companion Sep 15, 2005
This book is a marvellous companion for Dr. Irvin's "World Christian Movement" treatise.
