Christians today are becoming more and more interested in studying the roots of their faith and the development of the church. Finally there is an accessible but authoritative series every Christian can turn to: The Baker History of the Church. Readers will not merely learn the basics; The Baker History of the Church also examines much-ignored themes, such as the role of popular religion, women, and the history of the Bible. In volume one, The Birth of the Church, Ivor J. Davidson helps readers explores the first 300 years of church history using the most recent biblical research and historical scholarship. This highly readable series also examines recurring problems of the church, like its relationship with the state, other religions, and secularism.
