Colourful, divisive, and radical

Focussing in on the 16th Century, Needham shows us the progression of the Reformation era and the daring bravery of its figures. It’s a period of history from which there are many lessons to be learnt—not least of all, the vibrancy of people’s lives and the courage with which they faced death.


As the series continues, Neeham uncovers how attitudes of the Middle Ages provoked the Renaissance from which the passionate Reformation debates emerged. Follow the convictions and debates of key voices such as John Calvin, John Knox, Ulrich Zwingli, Martin Luther, William Tyndale and Ignatius of Loyola. Catholics, Calvinists, Lutherans, Anabaptists – our present–day divisions are rooted in the front–page headlines of the Reformation.

“It is a brave historian who tackles the extremely challenging task of writing the 2000–year history of the church. Nick Needham has more than risen to the challenge… well worth the wait”– Michael A.G. Haykin, Professor of Church History, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

For many years now I have said: if you want a thorough, learned but accessible and well-written history of the church, read Nick Needham's 2,000 Years of Christ's Power. Now, with the fourth volume finally available, Christians have an excellent resource for improving their knowledge of the history of their faith. Highly recommended.

What makes the books so useful is that in a non-technical (but not simplistic) way, they bring out the main story line of the history of the church through the centuries. But in addition, and most helpfully, each chapter concludes with a selection of writings (translated of course!) from people discussed in the chapter. This means that we are not only told what certain people believed, but we are able to read some of their actual writings -- and this is often extremely illuminating.
