History of the Christian Church is considered by many as the standard work for exploring and researching church history. Through nearly 7000 pages, Schaff takes you from the earliest days of the church, beginning with apostolic Christianity (A.D. 1-100), through the end of the Swiss Reformation (1650). Along the way, you are introduced to the people, places, and events for each period covered. More importantly, you'll learn about the ideas, general principles, and theological debates that shaped history as Schaff weaves these into the narrative.
The 8 volume set includes notes, charts, bibliographies, and an index, a wealth of information that is easily accessible from any point in your Bible study. By integrating this work into your PC Study Bible library, you can easily navigate the entire set to find information on any time period and subject. Using the index, you can quickly enter any time period and explore. Or you can use our "search" function to find names, places, events, or topics. The results will span the entire history, and their review will save hours of sifting through pages and pages of narrative.
