Description

One may read about the early church or the Renaissance popes without a clear idea of the who, where, when, what, why and how of those eras.This easy-to-read volume answers the basic question what did the Church look like in this particular period? for the four traditionally recognized eras of Church history: early, medieval, Reformation and modern.Each chapter includes a map and timeline to locate the reader in time and place.The timeline identifies what else was going on.Then they address these topics:1) The Big Picture: a broad overview of the era.2) The Church’s Hierarchy: a look at the popes, cardinals and bishops with their concerns.3) The Church in the Pews: what was Christianity like for the average person.4) What made this period unique–taking a comparative approach.All chapters conclude with discussion questions and a list for further reading.
