How does man think?

Into the Age of Reason came the Evangelical revival through the voices of George Whitefield, John Wesley and Jonathan Edwards. Despite a societal cooling, the work of God through evangelical Preachers awakened and warmed the hearts of many. In every age, Christ’s kingdom continues to conquer.

Needham brings us close to our most recent church history and uncovers the shifts in thought that radically altered society’s relationship to reason and faith. With the Enlightenment, came a tide of social, economic, and political change that deeply affected the spiritual climate.


• Scientific Revolution
• Immanuel Kant: The philosopher of the Enlightenment
• The French Revolution
• Calvinist–Arminian controversy
• Presbyterianism in the Scottish Highlands
• The Great Awakening
• Russian Orthodoxy


The fifth and final volume. Academically reliable, the accessible humorous style and accompanying glossary makes 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

As he assesses the European Enlightenment, evangelical revivals … and developments within Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy from his consistently Reformed perspective, Needham provides illuminating reading for those who share that perspective, but perhaps even more for those who do not.

… helpfully delineates the variegated state of professing Christendom in this crucial era with magisterial vim and verve. Highly recommended!
