One Faith-Many Transitions: World-Views in Church History

Front Cover
iUniverse, 2002 - Religion - 512 pages
Church history reads like a wartime romance tragedy with the promise of a happy ending. For the church is called Christ's Bride' in Scripture. One Faith Many Transitions snapshots the pathos, defeat and victory of the heroes and villains in historic Christianity. It exposes world-views that have both aided and distorted the faith over the centuries, and how God's Spirit brings churches back into living relationship with him. It explores why Christians thought and acted as they did.

Written in a way that takes the Bible seriously as a message system from the living God, One Faith analyzes historic ideas and events from a basically Evangelical perspective. It will boost the faith and historic understanding of any Christian who believes the Bible really is the word of God and the standard for church authority. It also highlights many of the crucial world-view issues Christians face today and how they arose.
