The Church and Western Culture: An Introduction to Church History

Front Cover
Booktango, Jan 5, 2012 - History - 456 pages

To live meaningfully in the present, and to plan wisely for the future, means building on the past. This kind of understanding is important when it comes to questions concerning both faith and culture. In the development of the Western world there has been a dynamic relationship between the church and civilization in general. This interplay has produced a rich heritage and foundations affecting governments, economics, family life, education, the arts, literature, science, the practice of religion, and many other areas.  The church has played a major role and cannot be brushed aside as secondary or irrelevant to our present lives. It is especially important that followers of Christ know the church’s history.

It is the standard mythology that has been perpetrated for thousands of years with virtually no scholastic research, simply regurgitating the party line. It is written by an evangelical, so it is largely a historical romance novel masquerading as legitimate history.
