Heroes and Heretics

Full Product Description

For the Christian, history is rich with meaning because we believe in a God who is intimately involved with his creation. Throughout time we see God's sovereign, caring and chastising hand at work to bring about the spread of the gospel and then the recreation of a new universe. One that will once more be in balance and sin is banished to plague us no more.

If God is real, and involved, then history bears his fingerprints.

Many people profess to be ignorant of church history but to remain so is to be ignorant of God. So many problems we face are eased by the lessons of history, especially church history. If we ignore history then we can't see what God is doing!

Iain Campbell has set out a lively and absorbing summary of history, one century at a time. The result entices you into the great sweeping themes of history that show God at work through his church.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones said that "It is always essential for us to supplement our reading of theology with the reading of church history¬Ö If we do not, we shall be in danger of becoming abstract, theoretical and academic in our view of truth; and, failing to relate it to the practicalities of life and daily living, we shall soon be in trouble."

Heroes and Heretics by Iain Campbell was published by Christian Focus Publications in May 2009 and is our 25176th best seller. The ISBN for Heroes and Heretics is 9781857929256.

"In an age where Christians are increasingly ignorant of their historical roots, Dr Campbell has done us a great service by achieving the near impossible: covering 2000 years of church history in twenty brief but highly informative chapters. A great place to start for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of how the church has witnessed to Christ throughout the ages."
Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

". . .a very helpful tool for equipping oneself with knowledge of what God was doing in earlier eras, and hence for understanding what he is doing worldwide today."
David Wright, Late Senior Lecturer in Ecclesiastical History at New College, University of Edinburgh

". . . a wise and breathtaking panorama of almost two thousand years of the history of the church with observations and insights in every single chapter."
Geoff Thomas, Aberystwyth Baptist Church, Aberystwyth, Wales

"Can 2000 years of church history be recorded within the compass of200 pages? Dr Campbell has demonstrated that it can!The book reflects the author's knowledge and ability to deal with amuch neglected subject in a gripping way. It will whet the appetiteof the uninformed and instruct those who have a love of church history."
