|The Little Flock||Lester Bauman|
Church history is full of mystery to the average Christian of today. Who were the Montanists? the Donatists? the Priscillians? the Waldensians? Were they heretics or Christians? Who was Constantine? Erasmus? Did the church fall in A.D. 312, when Christianity was legalized, or was it before? What happened to true Christianity during the Dark Ages? Can we trace our heritage back to the early church? Why did the Anabaptist churches flee from Europe? Where did they go, and what happened to them? Was the "great awakening" a true revival in the Mennonite church?
This overview of the history of the church from a Conservative Mennonite perspective answers these questions and many others in an interesting, readable style. It is intended for those who do not have much background in church history, but it will also help others to orient their knowledge. Each chapter includes study questions to aid in group discussion of the ideas presented.
