"Honest historian Christopher Catherwood informs us straightaway that he views the Christian story through the lenses of Protestant, Reformed, evangelical, baptistic, free-church spectacles. His telling of the tale, journalistic in style while scholarly in substance, then proves his point. You will find this book clarifying and invigorating."
J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College
"Christopher Catherwood provides an enriching, plain-language, big-picture overview of divine Providence as it unfolds in redemptive history from the close of the apostolic era until today. Church History is both wonderfully readable and carefully, clearly presented. It digs beneath the obvious and soars above the trite. This is a superb summary of the story of gospel history."
