Publishers Description
This is the second in a two-volume inclusive church history that pays special attention to Christianity in the southern hemisphere, Eastern Orthodoxy, the church among minority cultures in North America, and the role of women in church history. Beginning with an introduction that situates the Reformers within a medieval milieu, the present volume moves through five-hundred years of history to the present, concluding with the question of whether today's church is a liberating church or a church in decay.Through both volumes in this set, Mark Ellingsen presents church history not merely as a collection of facts but as an opportunity to enter into conversation with the church's richly diverse heritage. He sees the role of church history as: (1) community builder - teaching the faithful their heritage; (2) safety-patrol - sensitizing church leaders to the errors of the past that must still be confronted in the present; (3) liberating instrument - learning to look at reality from the perspective of the other, no longer chained to one's own suppositions and cultural biases; (4) source of theological creativity - providing access to the stimulating insights of the great theological minds of the past.Here, then, is an extraordinarily balanced text, one that provides readers with sympathetic exposure to a variety of credible, scholarly interpretations of major figures and that encourages readers to make their own judgments based on the evidence and with the help of suggested primary-source readings. Leading questions about the material covered are included at the end of each section.Mark Ellingsen is Associate Professor of Church History at the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta.

Ecclesstical History with a Scope: Christianity's real Roots  Jul 24, 2004
Ecclesiastical History with a Scope:
This is the first in a two-volume 'inclusive church history', that pays special attention to Christianity in the neglected hemisphere, Eastern Orthodoxy, the church among minority cultures in North America, and the role of women in church history. Beginning with an introduction that spells why this book is different, it is a search of how authentic is the Black Church as part of the early Church of Alexandria, an African Church, preached by John Mark, an African from Cyrene. The ancient Ethiopian Church (Mid fourth century)is a black Church that predates most European Churches, and Frumentius, its first Bishop was consecrated By Athanasius, the great defender of faith (called by the Arians;"The Black little man").
This first volume scans through the critical first five centuries of history of the early Church, concluding with the question of whether today's church is a liberating church or a church in paralysis.

Reclaiming Our Roots:
A clear concise, well searched and honestly written textbook of church history. Reclaiming Our Roots defines its scope as an inclusive church history book, that pays special attention to such neglected subjects as Oriental & Eastern Orthodoxy, the church of the minorities in North America, the role of women's ministry in church history. The text includes a good introduction to church history, history of development of Christian thought, with an elaborate theological analysis of major issues that influenced the turning points in ecclesiastic history, as per mark Noll's definition. Ellingsen has produced a doctrinally balanced text, providing seminarians and lay readers alike with a clear and non biased exposure to ecclessiastical history and doctrinal facts, encouraging readers to make their own judgments based on the evidence and with the help of the suggested primary source readings. Each section is amended with questions, designed to clarify the historical material and dogmatic oppositions for text study.


Author's Thematic Philosophy:
Mark Ellingsen, A. Professor of Church History at the Interdenominational Theological Center, Atlanta, presents church history as an integrated corpus. It is not merely a collection of facts but an ecumenical opportunity to enter into constructive dialogue with the church's diversevied traditions. He defines the role of Ecclessistical history as; teaching the faithful their heritage; thus a community builder; learning to look at faith and traditional issues from the perspective of the others, without suppositions and cultural biases, a liberating and healing ministry; alarming leaders of various churches to the taken for granted historically encountered errors, to be confronted and healed in the future; providing access to the stimulating insights of the great theological minds of the past, thus a source of theological renovation.
