Charts of Ancient and Medieval Church History will help Christians not only develop a firm grasp on the rich legacy of their faith, but understand how it influences the church today and their own lives as believers.
Although the charts are useful, the CD would be much more useful if the comments in the printed charts were in the powerpoint material as "Notes". Read morePublished on July 31, 2007 by jerry muckel
