Overview

“What’s the point of studying Church History?” “How can things that happened so long ago be relevant to life today?” The book you’re holding tackles these and other similar questions, demonstrating that the past perpetually informs the present. Written as an email dialogue between a Church History lecturer and an antagonistic student, the book touches on many key events in the history of the Christian church and claims that unless we understand the past, we struggle to understand our identity in the present and planning for the future can often become an exercise in futility. The study of Church History emerges as an essential tool for those wishing to understand, care for, and participate in the church of the 21st century.

About the Author

Peter Elliott was born into a family that had been involved in an offshoot of Mormonism for five generations. It was the study of history that led him out of this group in 1980. Peter's youth was spent traipsing around the world visiting about 40 countries; he became a Christian during a visit to Israel in 1981. Since then, he has occupied his time writing, fundraising and lecturing in Bible colleges and theological seminaries. Since 1975 he has had numerous articles, books and poems published. Peter holds degrees in English Literature and Theology, culminating with his doctoral thesis Edward Irving: Romantic theology in crisis (forthcoming from Paternoster). He is currently affiliated with Murdoch University, Vose Seminary and Harvest West Bible College. Based in Perth with his wife Deborah and sons Joel and Jason, Peter is passionate about black coffee, pungent cheese, anything with chilli, and Church History.
