During the Middle Ages the Church laboured to build a community of faith. This was a Church that sought to reign, love and conquest, a Church that wanted to secure freedom, and proclaim the gospel. When that Church fell into corruption it undertook its own reform. Which one of these is the medieval Church? They all are! And in that we find hope in the God who loves His Church as we seek to live in His name.
Luke H. Davis
Luke Herron Davis teaches ethics and church history at Westminster Christian Academy in St. Louis. He has authored books in the Cameron Ballack Mysteries and the Merivalkan Chronicles, as well as ‘Tough Issues, True Hope’. He has also penned lyrics to over seventy new hymns. An ordained priest in the Anglican Church in North America, Luke lives with his wife Christi and their family in St. Charles, Missouri.
An ideal springboard to propel readers into further study of a sadly neglected period in church history.
Lecturer in Church History, Highland Theological College, Dingwall, Scotland
With sparkling prose, backed by solid research, Luke Davis makes church history come alive for the young reader (and readers of all ages!). … offers engaging historical fiction but also provides timelines, factual summaries of significant figures and events, and insightful reflection.
Rector, Anglican Church of the Resurrection, Chesterfield, Missouri
Luke Davis selects pivotal moments from history, to which he applies an imagination like that of a Hollywood filmmaker. The past jumps into razor–sharp focus, as the reader sees, hears, and feels these episodes happening once again.

Luke Davis has given the reader a ringside seat to the parade of people who have made a difference in the history of the church. Sorting out heresies within and persecutions without, the church called for courageous men and women who stood for the truth. Those are the people you will find in the pages of this book. So sit back and enjoy, and learn how God used his people to care for and guard his church.
