This is the first episode in our series: Church History.
The idea of a biblical, theological, historical view is important. After we finished The Big Book—Cover to Cover, it seemed fitting that we would put the history together for inContext listeners to continue to build that view.
In this first conversation of the series, Michael and Dr. Hannah discuss:
- The imperative for understanding our history
- The path to hope
- The validity of Christianity
- Christianity in:
- The age of the Roman Empire
- The Medieval Period
- The Reformation
- The transcendence of the gospel throughout history
- How did church factions and traditions come about?
“If you don’t have a past, you can’t understand the present and you don’t have hope for the future.“
