50 WORLD-CHANGING EVENTS IN CHRISTIAN HISTORY
EARL M BLACKBURN

The increase in terrorism, the push for gender fluidity, the eradicating of Christianity from schools - During these worrying times, Earl Blackburn shows that learning about our history can be one of the best tools for encouraging us in our faith. Hearing stories of the perseverance of Christian heroes such as John Wycliffe, Martin Luther, and William Wilberforce is inspirational for everyday struggles; while seeing how God has grown His church through times of hardship and persecution helps us to have courage about the church of today.

"This really is a fine piece of work and should be very popular and highly useful in the church." - Tom J. Nettles, Senior Professor of Historical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

"... 50 World-Changing Events in Christian History is a helpful overview of church history written from an evangelical and reformed perspective. I hope it will help many believers understand how their own lives and local churches fit into the ongoing story of God's new covenant people from every tribe, language, and nation." - Nathan A. Finn, Associate Professor of Historical Theology and Baptist Studies, The Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, North Carolina

"... As a professor of Church History, one of the most frequent questions I am asked is for a recommendation of a simple survey of the life of the church over the last 2,000 years. Now I have the answer to that question..." - James M. Renihan, Dean and Professor of Historical Theology, Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies, Escondido, California
