Deep in History

Why should we go deep in history? As generations before us have learned, history is the laboratory for thinking about the issues that matter most to us as human beings. By placing ourselves back into another time, we are able to look at our own time with more objectivity; we see its strengths and weaknesses. For Christians, there is the additional truth that ours is a historical Faith. Christianity is rooted in the historical facts of Jesus's life. The Church, which is His Body, has lived, grown, and matured in space and time. The surest way to know Jesus and His Church is through the study of history, both biblical and post-biblical.

We hope these resources take you deep into the history of Christ’s Church and thereby deeper into Christ.
