It is the belief of the author that a significant change came about in the history of the church in the United Kingdom in the middle decades of the 20th century. It was by and large a recovery of something that had been a reality in the church in past generations. Step by step men were led to see what was missing in the type of Christianity that prevailed for the first half of the century and began to direct their minds back to the glories of past eras.

It is instructive to trace the various strands which were woven together in the providence of God to bring about the recovery. In most cases it was the discovery of some treasure of Christian literature from a spiritually-favoured age that set the person on the course he took. We find in the unfolding of history how the flame that burned in the heart of a man of God at one time is years later re-kindled in another as happened in the case of George Whitefield.

This third volume in the Westminster History of Christian Thought series is an accessible introduction to the main theological disputes and debates that helped shape the church in the period of early Christianity. Author Lisa Maugans Driver illustrates how early Christians' interactions with one another in worship, and in their care for strangers and the poor, shaped how they came to understand God. This interrelation of faith and practice is the clarifying lens through which the story of emerging Christian thought is told. Questions for discussion with each chapter make this book an excellent resource for classroom use.

Designed particularly for undergraduate courses in theology and religion, the Westminster History of Christian Thought series offers reliable and accessible introductions to Christian thought for each major period in Christian history--the early church, the medieval era, the Reformation, the modern age, and the contemporary period--and concludes with a volume on American religious thought.

Although much has been written on the evangelical revival of the 18th century, J. C. Ryle's Christian Leaders of the 18th Century remains the best popular introduction to this great spiritual era. With simplicity and vigour, he traces the lives of the eleven Christian leaders who 'shook England from one end to another', giving strong reasons for his belief 'that excepting Luther and his Continental contemporaries, and our own martyred Reformers, the world has seen no such men since the days of the apostles.' At the beginning of last century, Canon A. M. W. Christopher of St. Aldate's, Oxford, declared that he had turned to Ryle's book during every summer vacation for thirty years. It is time Christian Leaders of the 18th Century was so read again.

    From facing wild beasts in the arena to governing the Roman Empire, Christian women--as preachers and philosophers, martyrs and empresses, virgins and mothers--influenced the shape of the church in its formative centuries. This book provides in a single volume a nearly complete compendium of extant evidence about Christian women in the second through fifth centuries. It highlights the social and theological contributions they made to shaping early Christian beliefs and practices, integrating their influence into the history of the patristic church and showing how their achievements can be edifying for contemporary Christians.
