God’s Timeline

The Big Book of Church History

Linda Finlayson
  • £13.99

Description

With colour illustrations, pictures, and pull–out timelines, this history book brings the church throughout the ages to life!

 

Learn about the Early, Medieval and Missionary church, passing through key events such as the Council of Nicea and the Reformation – right through to the present day. Find out about the people God used and the impact they had on those around them – including us today!

 

This fascinating book is split into five colour–coded sections:

  1. The Early Church
  2. Medieval Church
  3. Reforming Church
  4. Missionary Church
  5. Modern Church

Sixteen colourful illustrated timelines place key events in church history in a broader historical context. Maps show the ways in which the gospel spread; tables clearly and simply lay out differences in beliefs; and illustrated pages explain key events, people and theological debates throughout the church’s 2,000 year history.

 

Although each period is different from the others, there are common threads that run through all of church history. Symbols highlight a number of important things to look out for:

  • Councils
  • Creeds
  • Martyrdom
  • Kings and Queens
  • Monsteries

This absorbing book will be a great aid to anyone looking for an overview of church history. The pull–out poster featuing the whole timeline, plus key herores and villains, make it easy to trace God’s work through his church.

Endorsements

Linda Finlayson has written an amazing resource for families. Using clear timelines, engaging illustrations, and theological precision, God's Timeline traces church history from its small beginnings to its worldwide impact. The entire family can learn together about the various people, creeds, and disputes that have shaped the church for the past 2000 years.

Linda Finlayson has done it again! She's given us a book that not only clearly describes the basic contours of Church History, but also one that draws us in with vivid illustrations and timelines. I want this in the hands of my own children and in the hands of the children of our church. I know I'll be buying copies for other friends and relatives as well. It is an excellent introduction to an important and oft-neglected topic - the work of God in the history of Christ's Church.
