The Church in History
A standard survey of the history of the Christian church from A.D. 33 to modern times, The Church in History by B.K. Kuiper has long been the textbook of choice for many secondary schools and Bible institutes.
Detailed and fact-filled yet balanced and readable, this volume offers a panoramic view of the church's growth worldwide throughout the past 2,000 years, including a comprehensive section on the church in the United States and Canada. With close to 300 photographs, maps, and timelines throughout and though-provoking study questions at the end of each chapter, The Church in History is an excellent introductory resource for laypeople and students alike.
