Melissa at Rainbow Resource Center has posted this review of Christian History Made Easy:
This book aims to increase Christians’ knowledge of church history. It provides thirteen weeks of study to build your understanding. Most people have little knowledge between the apostles and the twentieth century. This book fills in the gaps and offers a complete study of church history from AD 64 to present day. After an introduction, the book is broken into twelve chapters, each spanning a wide range of years. The chapters highlight key people and events, such as Emperor Nero, the Crusades, Francis of Assisi, John Wycliffe, the Gutenberg Bible, the Anabaptists, King James I, the Salem witch trials, Jonathan Edwards, Charles H. Spurgeon, C.S. Lewis, and many more. The book is full of information, yet still fairly light. Along the way, boxes provide names and terms you should know, web links, thought provoking questions, various facts, and quotes from past people. Each chapter closes with a learning activity, which is built on comprehension questions. Each lesson also has a leader’s guide, if you wish to use the book at an organized study. This book is ideal for churches, schools, small groups, homeschoolers, or individuals who desire to grow in knowledge of Christianity and the history of the church.
