The Church Triumphant: A History of Christianity Up to 1300

Front Cover
Mercer University Press, 1995 - Religion - 494 pages
0 Reviews
A comprehensive overview of the persons, events, movements, ideas, and idiosyncratic elements of the first 13 centuries of the Christian church. The history is inclusive and ecumenical. It is written from the point of view of the average person, with the significant role of women in the life and work of the church, for example, given serious attention. A defining feature is the attention that Hinson (church history, spirituality, Baptist Theological Seminary, Richmond) gives to often neglected areas, such as spirituality, as they affected and were affected by the many religious and secular currents that formed the world of the church.

Page 35 - For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
Page 6 - But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Page 6 - Deep within them I will plant my Law, writing it on their hearts. Then I will be their God and they shall be my people. There will be no further need for neighbour to try to teach neighbour, or brother to say to brother, 'Learn to know Yahweh!
Page 35 - Indeed, even though there are so-called gods in heaven and on earth (there are, to be sure, many "gods" and many "lords"), yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom all things are and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are and through whom we exist.
Page 20 - Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?
