John D. Woodbridge ã 3 download Church History Volume Two review ☆ 103 Church History Volume Two From the Pre Reformation to Present Day by John D Woodbridge and Frank A James III Very solid volume Easy to read Lots of details My major criticism is that the story is not woven together as well as it could because of the commitment to provide all the detail I fear the story of church history gets lost at times The material on 20th century theology was good An excellent job with evangelicalism and fundamentalism I am not sure that some of the figures written about see emergent church will stand the test of time They will not even be a blip on the radar screen in fifty years let alone 500 But that is the risk of writing of current events in a comprehensive history A very good resource that will serve well as a reference volume Let God Guide You Daily read Lots of details My major criticism is that the story is not woven together as well as it could because of the commitment to provide all the detail I fear the story of church history gets lost at times The material on 20th century theology was good An excellent job with evangelicalism and fundamentalism I am not sure that some of the figures written about see emergent church will stand the test of time They will not even be a blip on the The Art of the Hustle radar screen in fifty years let alone 500 But that is the Adolfo Kaminsky risk of writing of current events in a comprehensive history A very good Life and Poetry of Sara Shagufta resource that will serve well as a 23 Weihnachts Tiergeschichten reference volume

John D. Woodbridge ã 3 download Church History Volume Two review ☆ 103 Displays the growth of the church from the Reformation times to the present within the cultural intellectua This volume is a continuation of volume one but by two different authors This means that the writing style is somewhat different personally I preferred the first volume but the way they present the history is largely similar This volume is from pre reformation 1300s to the present dayLike in the previous volume I appreciated the mini explanations of the theology involved and the biographies of key figures I also liked the fact that the book also looks at the political societal and economic of the time especially political since Christianity was very closely tied to politicsBits of information that surprised me include Martin Luther s marriage to Katie It started out as a loveless marriage but Luther fell in love with his wife and the fact that such a key figure in the reformation had such an unusual marriage shaped attitudes towards marriage in society I didn t know that predestination was not the wellspring of Calvin s theology because that is what I remember most clearly and struggle with for that matterBut while the book is easy to read it does try to cram about 700 years of history into 800 ish pages which means some extreme simplifications are made For example the book says that Catherine Catherine the Great did little to improve the plight of serfs during her reignSince I just finished a biography about her I found this simplification a little insulting because she had a plan to free the serfs but eventually abandoned it for practical reasons The book also made no mention of her Nakaz which I thought was a pity since she did consult many people about it and their reactions would have been helpful to explaining attitudes in RussiaMore importantly I thought that this volume was too focused on Europe specifically the British Isles and France and later on America Russia was given several sections but not whole chapters while Asia Africa and the Middle East were largely left out they did appear in the last one third but I thought their presence was far too little The persecution in Japan was almost entirely left out and a lot of the history in India and China greatly summarisedIt is a pity because there is a history and in the case of Africa the book even admits that it Christianity has a continuous history on the continent of Africa of nearly two thousand years So even if there weren t many theological debates going on I think the development of Christianity in those regions should have been given spaceThankfully things did get globalised towards the end and I found the discussion on the new centres of global Christianity and the modern theological trajectories to be fascinating especially the contextual theologies since I haven t heard of most of them It s an area that I d like to read about so hopefully I can find recommendations some dayIf you ve read volume one you ll want to read volume two The style of the book is largely the same and it s a good way to get an overview of the history of the Church even if it is very European centric And to end a uote I liked The ultimate value of history lies not in its predictive ability or even its capacity for elucidation but in its aptitude to teach humilityDisclaimer I got a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a free and honest reviewThis review was first posted at Inside the mind of a Bibliophile
