あらすじ・解説

Over 330,000 copies sold. This is the story of the church for today's listeners.

Bruce Shelley's classic history of the church brings the story of global Christianity into the 21st century. Like a skilled screenwriter, Shelley begins each chapter with three elements: characters, setting, plot. Taking you from the early centuries of the church up through the modern era he tells a story of actual people, in a particular situation, taking action or being acted upon, provides a window into the circumstances and historical context, and from there develops the story of a major period or theme of Christian history. Covering recent events, this book also:

  • Details the rapid growth of evangelical and Pentecostal Christianity in the southern hemisphere
  • Addresses the decline in traditional mainline denominations
  • Examines the influence of technology on the spread of the gospel
  • Discusses how Christianity intersects with other religions in countries all over the world

For this fifth edition, Marshall Shelley brought together a team of historians, historical theologians, and editors to revise and update this father's classic text. The new edition adds important stories of the development of Christianity in Asia, India, and Africa, both in the early church as well as in the twentieth and 21st centuries. It also highlights the stories of women and non-Europeans who significantly influenced the development of Christianity but whose contributions are often overlooked in previous overviews of church history.

This concise book provides an approachable guide to church history with intellectual substance. The new edition of Church History in Plain Language promises to set a new standard for accessible church history.

Maps, timelines, suggested reading, and end notes are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Good general history, but biased.

I normally don't type reviews but this one doesn't have any at all. Production is fine, however the content isn't what I was hoping for. Its a decent church history, but I was looking for one with less Christian bias. The author writes from the perspective that the religion is true, which is okay since he does tell an honest if somewhat rosier version of church history. It's a good general history, but definitely not recommended as a sole source of information.

Good intentions poor results

Apparently the objective of this book was to make Church History comprehensible to anyone, regardless of their literacy. The final product, however, is a narrative that seems directed to imbeciles, at the same time some terms like "Orthodoxy" are introduced and not immediately explained as they should.
I stopped listening when the author asserted that "Jesus accepted the Old Testament" this is total baloney, because the Lord Jesus is the author of the Old Testament. One wasted credit.
