As always, Needham remains attentive to the big picture, yet he also manages to maintain a grasp of the lesser known details throughout. Especially notable is Needham’s inclusion of the Eastern and Russian Orthodox Church. Highly recommended.
Jonathan Master, President, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, South Carolina
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.
Mark A. Noll, Author of ‘America’s Book: The Rise and Decline of a Bible Civilization, 1794–1911’
… helpfully delineates the variegated state of professing Christendom in this crucial era with magisterial vim and verve. Highly recommended!
Michael A. G. Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
These volumes should be compulsory reading, first for pastors and elders called to teach and defend the faith, but also for Christians in general who desire to deepen their knowledge of the Saviour’s power throughout the church’s history.
