Turning Points: Decisive Moments in the History of Christianity

Book review by Deane Barker tags: faith, history

This book traces the history of Christianity by defining 12 “turning points,” which are pivotal moments in its development. These range from the Council of Niceo, to the Reformation (the Diet of Worms, actually), to the Edinburgh Mission conference in 1910.

It was a good book, and certainly well-researched, but quite a bit of it went over my head. The author is a theologian at Wheaton College, and the book assumes a fair amount of knowledge. You need to be a student of Christian history, and I suspect the book is intended to be a supplemental text in a seminary course.

Still, it was quite interesting and gave me background on major moments and movements in the history of the church.
