I love history, and am always excited to learn more about church history, so I was estatic when I had the opportunity to review Brian Cosby’s new book on church history, God’s Story.
God’s Story, while a small book, should not be overlooked! Easy to read, and written in layman’s terms, God’s Story condenses more than two thousand years of church history into a manageable 138 pages.
Replete with Scripture references, Cosby discusses why we should study church history, and while written with a reformed, teenage audience in mind, God’s Story is a book that Christians of all ages and backgrounds will find useful.
God’s Story allows readers a brief, yet broad, insight into our religious past as Christians, covering everything from the disciples, Apostolic Fathers, and Church Fathers to creeds, confessions, and catechisms, from the Crusades, the Reformation, and cults to fundamentalism, evangelicalism, and evolution!
God’s Story is an excellent overview of the history of Christianity, complete with discussion questions following each chapter, making it ideal for family or group discussion. I would highly recommend God’s Story to Christians everywhere, particularly if they are interested in knowing more about the history behind their faith! I would give God’s Story an “A”.
