Glorious Institution: The Church in History, 1&2: AD100-1516 (eBook)

by Stanford E. Murrell

Available in ePub, Kindle .mobi and .pdf formats

A Glorious Institution: The Church in History, Parts One and Two is the first volume of the four part series encompassing the breadth of Church history from its beginnings to the present day.

Part One: When the Church Was Young AD 33-754 focuses on the early growth of the Christian Church, developing from a small assembly of believers in Jerusalem to become a vast spiritual kingdom touching the lives of millions in many lands. Under the influence of Church Fathers and councils, carefully worded creeds guided the core doctrines of Christianity. The saints were persecuted at the hands of Jews and then Gentiles, but the Church miraculously survived to fulfill the Great Commission for its day.

Part Two: The Church in the Middle Ages AD 754-1517 traces the days of Charlemagne to the dawn of the Reformation. Popes and Emperors maneuvered for church power, bringing division into East and West, control by civil governments, and great wealth. The Crusades brought contact with the rich civilizations of the East. New ways of thinking swept in the Renaissance. Pagan culture mixed with Christian truth, resulting in new persecution from within and urgent cry for reform.
