30 Events That Shaped the Church

(2015)
A non fiction book by

 
Uncover the surprising history of the Christian church

The church of today did not appear on the earth fully formed; rather, it developed over the centuries. Following Jesus' command to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth, the apostles and their spiritual descendants have grown the church through times of peace and times of war, through persecution and pilgrimage. The church that began as a ragtag group of Middle Eastern fishermen, tax collectors, and zealots became the multiethnic, multifaceted church we know today through historical events that, while they may seem distant, have a direct effect on our everyday lives.

Now thirty of these course-altering events are brought vividly to life by consummate storyteller Alton Gansky. Spanning twenty centuries of history, this lively book will entertain, educate, and enlighten you even as it enriches your appreciation for those who have come before us in the faith.

Alton Gansky is the author of twenty-four novels and eight nonfiction books, including 60 People Who Shaped the Church. He is a Carol Award and Angel Award winner, and has been a Christy Award finalist. He holds a BA and an MA in biblical studies and has been awarded a Doctor of Literature degree. Director of the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference, Gansky also serves as an editor and collaborative writer for top-tier authors. He lives in California.
