Have you been looking for a book about church history or has someone you know?
God’s Story, by Brian Cosby, is an easy to read, yet complete book about Christian Church history. This book includes questions at the end of the chapters and an overview of church history. The church history is from the beginning of the Old Testament to today.
Some of the subjects included are:
- church in the dark ages.
- the reformations.
- how the Bible has been abandoned today
- fundamentalism and evangelicalism.
About the Author- Brian Cosby is from Tennessee and is Pastor of Wayside Presbyterian Church. He has written a number of books.
My thoughts- I know a little something about about church history, but God’s Story, by Brian Cosby, filled in any information I was missing. I learned more about creeds, Apostolic Fathers, the Reformations, and who has abandoned the Bible and what happened because of that.
I liked this book, because Cosby made this book factual. He did not include his opinions. I never works when an author decides to add his own opinions into a book that was not made for them. I also liked how he included questions at the end of each chapter, so the reader could review and study what was read. End-of-chapter questions are something that I find especially important when I read a nonfiction book.
I really liked this book and I think it would be perfect for young adults or adults who want a basic history of the church. I highly recommend it.
