Christians today are becoming more and more interested in studying the roots of their faith and the development of the church. Finally, here is an accessible but authoritative series that every Christian can turn to: The Baker History of the Church. In the first volume of this series, readers explored the first three hundred years of church history using the most recent biblical research and historical scholarship. Now, A Public Faith covers the years AD 312 - 600, explaining how the church defended itself against unorthodox views and clarified its definitions of Jesus Christ. Bringing the story into the present, this highly readable series shows how the worship, ministry, and theology of the early church have developed into forms still recognized today.
