Church History, Volume One: Audio Lectures: From Christ To The Pre-reformation

Church History, Volume One: Audio Lectures: From Christ To The Pre-reformation


These audio lectures are a unique learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook’s direct narration of a book’s text, Church History, Volume One: Audio Lectures includes high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.

Church History, Volume One: Audio Lectures offers a unique contextual view of how the Christian church spread and developed from the days of Jesus to the years prior to the Reformation. The church did so not in a vacuum, but in a setting of times, cultures, and events that both influenced and were influenced by it. These lectures help explore the integral link between the history of the world and that of the church.

These lectures feature the author teaching through each chapter in the book. Useful for traditional students, students in distance and online courses, and independent learners alike, these lectures provide a full introduction to church history from the time of Christ to the pre-Reformation.
