Church History differs from other popular Protestant "church histories" on the .

Church History differs from other popular Protestant "church histories" on the market because it has been written by three scholars, each of whom is a recognized authority in his field. The volumes thus bring a level of scholarly insight and familiarity with the various historical specializations that is almost impossible for any one scholar to achieve. In Volume 1 Ferguson, a noted Patristic scholar, treats his subjects with what we may call "critical reverence," highlighting the many failings and limitations of the Church fathers.

Church History offers a unique contextual view of how the Christian church spread and developed. It did so not in a vacuum, but in a setting of times, cultures, and events that both influenced and were influenced by the church. Church History looks closely at the integral link between the history of the world and that of the church. Volume one explores the development of the church from the days of Jesus to the years prior to the Reformation. Filled with maps, charts, and illustrations, it offers overviews of the Roman, Greek, and Jewish worlds; insights into the church’s relationship to the Roman empire, with glimpses into pagan attitudes toward Christians; the place of art and architecture, literature and philosophy, both sacred and secular; and much more, spanning the time from the first through the thirteenth centuries.

This book is difficult to read and requires a graduate level of church history to understand sections of narrative. To give you an idea here is an excerpt. "It seems that by the ninth century there was a split in the Paulicians. One group in Byzantium adopted a dualist-docetic position. This Western group was the one known to the Byzantine polemicists and influenced the Bogomils in the Balkans, who followed the Manichaean dualist viewpoint. The charge of Manichaeism against the Paulicians as a whole may have had special reference to Iconoclasm, because dualism was perceived to give a theoretical basis for the rejection of images."

Professor Ferguson is a good teacher, he has well considered thoughts about what subject it is at hand. He is a kind and considerate and helpful man.

Like the book Backgrounds of Early Christianity, this book covers the ground in a comprehensive way, although this book stretches up to Dante and beyond. He goes back to Plato and Aristotle's ideas on forms(or universals) as he moves up to mediaeval times, comparing Aquinas and Ockham, demonstrating the connexion wherein the Mediaeval and Renaissance authors are found looking back to our philosophic forebears, the Greeks, as he writes about the impact of philosophy. He covers a lot of ground in this volume. I am glad that I found this book. I have only read in several parts of the book, as I read more I will return to give this a better review..

Thank you Dr. Ferguson, I am sorry that this review is so paltry a praise.

The section of this book that deals with the Patristic Period has a lot of information - almost too much. This contrasts with the sections on medieval development which often only make cursory references to contemporary events. The handling of the late Medieval Period seemed to be unnecessarily rushed.

At times, Ferguson seems to have edited out large passages which are referred to later. In other places, the chronology of events is sacrificed to make tangential references. As a result, there is really no sense of flow to the narrative.

The text wrestles a lot with theological issues that could be referenced simply or in an appendix. This becomes an obstacle to being able to keep a mental timeline as the reader explores the text. The book should be considered more of a history of the church's dealing with heresy and controversy than a history of the church itself.

This book was a required text for a elective class I took in grad school. While I really enjoyed this class, I wasn't thrilled with this text. I am an avid reader, and usually can at least get through any text and with this one it was a challenge. I didn't like how the author worded sentences, and sometimes it was hard with his choice of language tense to understand what he was saying. Perhaps it is personal preference, but I struggled (and I am not a poor reader.... I read peer reviewed case work all the time for other classes.)
Aside from this, it was an informative text. So if you are looking for a glimpse in to this time period, and you can slog on through, you will learn.

This book has a ton of information about places and the names of those who were involved in any given circumstance. The book is not exhaustive. I didn't enjoy reading this book...but that may have been due to the fact that I had to nearly memorize every page to pass my Grad exams. Way too many names, places, and dates to memorize. Though, I do not regret reading this text. It contains some obscure details about church history that I had never read in any other church history book.

This book is an excellent choice for anyone interested in early church history. Among the small community of patristic scholars in the world, Everett Ferguson is one of the finest. His attention to detail is remarkable. Catholic readers will no doubt tend to detect slight traces of Protestant/fundamentalist bias hear and there, but these minor shortcomings are well worth overlooking for the overall value of this work. Everett Ferguson, well done.

For anyone who might find this book of interest, I would also recommend his other monumental work: Baptism In The Early Church.

This was an exciting read and informative in the most useful practical ways! I would not have a library about church history without this book. Buy it!
A great resource to understand the controversies surrounding the early to middle church. Just finished reading this for my church history class and I found it to be very informative. However, it is very complex and there are a ton of names you are going to forget and a ton of things that seem important but are not talked about in later chapters. This book goes well with a theological dictionary so that one may fully comprehend the debates and comments that are made in the book.
