"I found this book
easy to follow and good to read. I feel like I understand how we got from when the church became accepted in
Rome to now. The author explained about the mistakes the church made and how to avoid those mistakes in the
future. It made me see how important it is to have reform in the church today. This is the best history of the
church I have read so far."

"Dr Zuiddam has
given us a very useful introduction to the history of the church. While it is an overview, there is sufficient
detail on the most important events/movements to give a fair representation of what has gone before. The
unpleasant aspects of the church's history are not played down, but rather are examined in the light of
Scripture, often by way of terse witticisms and probing questions. I recommend Dr Zuiddam's book to those
wanting an introduction to church history, and also to those who already have a grasp of church history but
would benefit from such a well integrated approach."
I am delighted to
announce the publication of my new book "Hope and Disillusionment,a basic introduction to the history of
Christianity". It helps Christians and non Christiansto retrieve hope in times like ours when questions
and disappointment seem to abound.
Apart from what the reviews value as a very readable practical approach andbasic introduction to the history of Christianity
(short chapters, clear divisions).
I have also added a
substantial workbook / study guide for readers,
church groups and college students.
