Book Review: Christian History Made Easy by Timothy Paul Jones

Cannonball Read IV #18

Christian History Made Easy by Timothy Paul Jones was assigned to me as a textbook for School of Ministry and I have to say, it is exactly what it promises to be: a book of Christian history — made easy. This will be my most concise review ever. The book has easy-to-read and understand text. Jones breaks up each chapter into logical time periods and each chapter has a summary at the start of events, people, and terms you should know, which I found super helpful. There are excerpts from original documents (obviously translated into English). Although pretty brief (the entirety of church history cannot be summed up in 188 pages of text!), I think this book provides an excellent introduction and has definitely made me want to do more research into a lot of the different topics. Whether you love or hate Christianity, this is a book to read as it gives you a foundation of what our modern church is built upon.

Overall Rating: 8/10
