Editorial Reviews

Review

'A great supplement to a Sunday School class, church history class, or talk where you are trying to include some of the cultural context of the message....[A] great job of condensing church history into a very approachable and visible tool.' (YouthWorker Journal)

From the Back Cover

The rich tapestry of nearly 2,000 years of church history overflows with persons, places, events, dates, and ideas. This volume in the popular ZondervanCharts series visually organizes large amounts of information from the history of the church for greater understanding and ease of reference. Students, teachers, pastors, and church history buffs will find this collection a valuable reference, one they will turn to again and again for their own information and for teaching others. This revised and expanded edition contains 126 charts (43 of which are new) that cover the history of the ancient church, the medieval church, the Reformation, the modern European church, the American church, and more. The accessible visual presentation assists in grasping not only facts, but parallels, contrasts, and relationships between those facts. Besides the charts themselves, a helpful bibliography and index are included.

Format: Paperback
Nothing really beats a good chart that can lay out similarities and differences when you are studying historical events, theological tenants or similar items. Likewise charts are excellent for illustrating a time line or listings or items. This book excels in putting together teaching charts of all sorts of information in a form where it is easy to understand. Examples of the types of charts included in this text include a Timeline of Church History, The Divine Sovereignty and Free Will debate through the centuries, Branches of Eastern Orthodox Christianity, Early Symbols of Christianity, Apostolic Fathers and Early Writings, Development of the New Testament Canon, Ante-Nicene Heresies, Ancient Church Heresies, Women in the Ancient Church, The Crusades, Major Monastic Orders, Protestant Creeds of the Reformation Era, European Revivals, Major Indigenous Christian Religious Movements in Africa, Translations of the Bible into English, Religion in the Thirteen Colonies, Denominational Schisms over Slavery, Black Denominations in the United States, and Family Trees of the major American Christian groups. These are only a few of the 126 charts presented in this book. An excellent choice for studying church history, Chronological and Background Charts of Church History is highly recommended.

This book alone isn't going to give you a thorough background in church history, but as a supplement to more thorough texts (like MacCulloch's Christianity: the First Three Thousand Years), it's excellent. It's perfect for quickly looking up information about specific figures or movements, and it definitely saved me on my church history exam. It's a book that I'm sure I'll use after I finish school too. Highly recommended.

As the Zondervan Charts series presents a well formatted product, Chronological And Background Charts of Church History: Revised And Expanded Edition by Robert C. Walton is an accurate and precise history of the past 2000 years of the Christian Church. Church History is an expansive and highly informative look into the entirety of the Christian Church's history, and is highly recommended as an excellent reference for both clergy and lay members of the Christian Church.

I teach an adult Sunday School class, so I have several books/resources like this to help illustrate complex concepts or historic events. Since so many individuals lack knowledge of church history I have tried to weave perspectives from the past into current discussions. This Book of Charts is a convenient and valuable resource.

What might improve this volume? I would propose that each page be perforated 1/2 inch from the binding. That might add to the expense, but it would certainly make removing the pages more convenient.

This is a rare book indeed. It is the third in a series starting back around 1950, each edition essentially updates the former. I am an engineer/geologist, not a priest/minister, but this book really lays out the statistics that no other book that I know of does. If you are interested in the "truth" about our religious organizations now-a-days, this is the real stuff.
