Turning the world upside down is a messy business.


Universal uncertainty was the aftermath of the Reformation. The Renaissance and Reformation were exciting times of learning and discovery – they pushed the boundaries of accepted thought. The centuries–old status quo had been turned on its head. Nothing was stable anymore. Conflict ensued.

This next instalment of 2,000 Years of Christ’s Power spans from the 16th to the 18th century, Needham documents the birth and coming of age of English Protestantism, Scottish Presbyterianism, and French Catholicism. Perhaps few eras have had such a direct impact on the characteristics of our own period of history.



• Germany and the Lutheran Faith
• The Thirty Years’ War
• The Arminian Controversy and the Synod of Dort
• Puritanism
• The Glorious Revolution
• Persecution in France
• Missionary movements

Volume four of five. Academically reliable, the accessible humorous style and accompanying glossary make church history a subject for everyone to benefit from.

“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.
