Note Nov 20 2017 In view of its uality as well written history its educational value in general and to me personally and the importance in my estimation of the subject matter on reflection I've concluded that this book deserves a full five starsThe present is impossible to understand without knowing the past understanding how we got where we are today and why That's why the widespread historical amnesia of modern times is so harmful both in society and the church In the latter people typically imagine that their particular denomination is a direct continuation of the New Testament church with its beliefs and practices essentially unchanged and that no other denomination plays any meaningful part in church history As an overview of the story of Christianity as solid and detailed as a one volume work allows this is probably the best basic introduction to the facts and framework of the real history and the best antidote to historical amnesia ever written It would provide anyone interested in the subject and all believers certainly ought to be with an indispensable foundation of historical knowledge to build onLatourette avoids uncritical triumphalism taking as his overarching concept the Apostle Paul's observation that we have this treasure in earthen vessels so that the power at work in it may be seen to be God's not ours The author casts a clear light of history on both the earthen uality of the vessels and the reality of the power Latourette has done a marvelous job of writing Christian history This book is a classic and very long over 1400 pages and is shorter than many others of his It is well written and worth the readJ Robert Ewbank author John Wesley Natural Man and the 'Isms'
