Product Description

This book was born out of the author's deep conviction that today's Christians can benefit enormously from learning what God has done in the past. The mighty acts of Christ did not come to a holt soon after the events recorded in the book of Acts. In every century since the first, the Almighty has been at work and believers can trace his footsteps by studying the way that Christians of a previous generation faced the challenges that confronted them. It is intended that this will be the first in a series of four volumes, which will covert the History of the Church from the earliest days up till modern times. Pastors and preachers will undoubtedly gain much from this series, and those who already have an interest in Church History will find the four books useful additions to their library. Nevertheless, the series is written in a style that will appeal to the non-specialist and any modern Christian will find it challenging and stimulating to be introduced to men and women who loved and served the same Savior that he lives and serves. This volume deals with the age of the martyrs such as Blandina and Polycarp, theologians like Athanasius and Augustine of Hippo and preachers like John Chrysostom.

Format: Paperback
This book covers the period in church history commonly known as the 'age of the early church fathers'. It describes the lives of, and the events surrounding the lives of, famous men such as Augustine and Jerome and also many other not so well-known men. What I found especially helpful was the fact that the author not only provides insights to movements within the church, but also to the various philosophies and sects in that day. Particularly interesting to British readers is a section in the book which relates the spread of the gospel to Britain and the establishing of a church there.
Readers of this book are assumed to have little or no previous knowledge of church history. The author has set forth the book in straightforward and non-technical language which is not only extremely helpful but also a pleasure to read. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the early days of the church.

Format: Paperback
I have to admit I walked past this book several times when in my local Christian bookshop. The spine just looked a bit weird. A thin-faced bearded man peered out from below the bold yellow writing of the title. I was later to find out that it was Athanasius of Alexandria who so piercingly scared me off to another corner of the shop. The cover just isn't very inspiring and looks a little as if it was designed by a high school media studies student.

But don't let that put the reader off. Prior to reading this book, I had no interest and little or no knowledge of the early history of the Christian Church. This was very quickly changed and Needham has an easy to read conversational writing style which lends itself to a simplified but unabridged account of early Church history. He skilfully guides the reader through the web of names and events, separating the heroes from the heretics. A helpful section at the end of each chapter summarises the characters mentioned and includes significant writings from a few of the most important. An introductory chapter is included to explain dates, timelines and Roman numerals which is helpful for the reader if all he got in History class was detention.

Some readers may be put off a little by Needham's anti-paedo baptism digs but it's a small complaint in an otherwise thoroughly adequate introduction to Christian history.

Despite not looking forward to studying Church history, this book has made it startling easy and interesting. The sort of book I would actually pick up and read for pleasure as well as study.

Format: Paperback
I was introduced to this series of books when I was doing church history at theological college (WEST the finest theological College in the UK). As such don't think I could have had a better introduction. I always been very keen on church history but these books made reading about it is an incredible amount of fun and I actually took the each volume on holiday with me to read! This particular volume gives a very clear and readable insight into the early church. What emerges is the vitality of many parts of the early church and also the struggle and confusion in some parts of it of trying to be biblically orientated. What is particularly helpful is that Nick Neeham includes extracts of the writings of some of the main figures in the early church who he has mentioned in the text. All in all this is a very good book a very reasonable price and if you are thinking about getting a book on Church history, this will be one of the best places to start!
