Product Description:

The first paragraph from the preface of this book offers a wonderful insight into this book. It reads: "The story of the Christian Church is intensely interesting. It deals with some of the most dramatic episodes in history. For the children of God it is also instructive and inspiring. They regard it as a heritage that should be passed on to their children." This book was created as a textbook for a Christian-perspective class about church history. The text is divided into five sections, and spans history from 33 A.D. to present times. The five sections cover the young Christian Church, the Church in the Middle Ages, the Church in the Reformation, the Church After the Reformation, and the Church in the New World. Each section is then further divided into chapters which discuss the growth of the church, divisions, rises and declines of power, reformations, the church in various countries, various denominations, and lots of other components of church history. After each chapter, review questions are offered to promote further thinking about the chapter and its relevance to current life. The questions can be rather complex and are probably best used with students from the upper grades. Maps and timelines throughout the book correlate with the text, and dozens of black and white photographs with captions illustrate the events. 412 pgs w/ index. ~ Rachel S.

Category Description for Veritas History Programs:

Instead of isolating Bible and Christian history from what was happening in the rest of the world, the folks at Veritas aim to incorporate it. They offer four different history time periods (each aimed at a different grade level and designed to take one school year) which take students from creation to the present. The program originally had three parts: teacher's manual, history cards (an absolutely essential element of the curriculum) and a memory song on audio CD. The song is sung by a woman with a pleasant voice at varying tempos and is designed as a type of auditory time line. The history cards are fantastic! They have many interesting facets (the more you study them, the more you learn). The cards from the various time periods are color coded and numbered - there are 32 cards in each pack. If the cards also relate to Bible history they have another color and another number. Each card has a picture (usually in full color) representing what it is about. For example, the card for Creation has a reproduction of the Creation of the sun and moon from the Sistine Chapel Ceiling by Michelangelo. Many of the other pictures on the other cards are famous paintings as well. Each card has a

This text came highly recommended to us. A knowledge of church history is vital to believers. Where we have come from is important so we can more carefully choose where we are headed!
