A Summary of Christian History

Capa
B&H Publishing Group, 2005 - 468 páginas

Originally published in 1959, A Summary of Christian History has been a classic text for introductory-level studies of Christian history for more than four decades. Even in the face of advancing history, new findings, and changing perspectives, Dr. Baker's original classic has remained popular decades beyond the normal life expectancy of a textbook.

In this third edition, Dr. John Landers, a former student of Dr. Baker, builds on the original goal of helping students grasp the broad contours of Christian history without becoming lost in a maze of historical detail.
