One of the best books I've ever read on church history. The depth of scholarship is breathtaking and the manner in which Schaff honors Scripture is so refreshing and I anticipate much benefit as I continue through this volume. 17 people found this helpful. As a Christian myself, I was thus thrilled to discover this "History of the Christian Church" by Philip Schaff, who, though he was himself a scholar, was also a devout Christian. As such, he unabashedly presented the history of Christian religion from a thoroughly Christian perspective.

About History of the Christian Church, Volume I: Apostolic Christianity. work and spiritual life of that period. I have studiously avoided repetition and seldom looked into the older book. On two points I have changed my opinion-the second Roman captivity of Paul (which I am disposed to admit in the interest of the Pastoral Epistles), and the date of the Apocalypse (which I now assign, with the majority of modern critics, to the year 68 or 69 instead of 95, as before).

Schaff is a conservative and takes a conservative stance toward church history. The series was written by Phillip Schaff, with his son David covering the The History of the Christian Church covers the period from the Apostolic Age up to the German and Swiss Reformation.

Стр. 588 - If these writings of the Greeks agree with the book of God, they are useless and need not be preserved : if they disagree, they are pernicious and ought to be destroyed. Встречается в книгах (272) с 1804 по 2007.

This history is not for faint of heart. It is a heavy detail oriented history. I would call it an excellent history of reference work but a little heavy for any sort of casual reading.
  • Mildorah
I enjoy the clarity of Philip Schaff's accounts of church history and the works and lives of our church fathers. I got this and the other volumes that complete the account.

Rather worn but what I wanted.
  • Nakora
The axiom "You get what you paid for" applies here. Only main chapters are linked; not subtitles or notes. Missing words and spelling errors.
  • Gralsa
Like so many of the less expensive Kindle books, the positive reviews concerning hyperlinks and easy navigation turn out to be erronius. The content of the book is interesting and informative, but only if you plan to simply read straight through.
  • Fordg
My rating is not for the content of the book, but for the Kindle format of the book. It is really disappointing to find out that there is no functioning hyperlink available on the content page. Huge frustration.
Even though Philip Schaff's "History of the Christian Church" was written nearly 150 years ago it is still a classic in the field of church history. Of course, it hasn't had the benefit of more recent developments in scholarship, but it remains an accurate assessment of its subject. Volume 3 describes the history of the church from the time of the Edict of Milan (311 AD) until 590 AD. It describes in detail the effects of the acceptance of Christianity in the empire and its eventual status as the religion of the empire. This includes thorough descriptions of the growing hierarchy of the church, schisms within the church, the ongoing development of public worship and ceremonies, and Christian art. The latter part of Volume 3 discusses the great Christological controversies of the fourth through the sixth century, as well as the first five Ecumenical Councils––from Nicaea (325 AD) through the Second Council of Constantinople (553 AD). Shaff's work is detailed, but it is clearly written, and for someone looking for a carefully-written and thorough church history during this period, it is worth the time and energy.
