Book of the Month: Church History in Plain Language by Bruce L. Shelley
If you are looking for a well-written and easy to digest overview of church history, Church History in Plain Language by Bruce L. Shelley is the book for you. From the days of Jesus through the gospel expansion of the early 1900s, this book covers it all in an accessible way. Every walking Christian should have an awareness of how we got to where we are today in the church age. A solid understanding of church history will also help you better understand your own church’s practices and how our modern day understanding of theology came about.
If other church history books proved to be too dry or academic for you, I recommend giving Shelley’s book a try. You can find it on Amazon or read a free copy in the Study Center.
