Excerpt from A Handbook of Church History, From the Apostolic Era to the Dawn of the Reformation

The following pages are intended to present an outline, with illustrative details, of the chief events connected with the establishments and growth of Christ's kingdom upon earth. Some competent knowledge of these facts, and of the life and character of those personages who by their actions and writings have mainly affected the history, ought surely to be acquired in the course of every Christian's education.

The too general neglect of the study may have arisen in part from its complexity. It ranges over so many lands; its centre is so frequently shifting; its points of contact with human interests are so numerous and varied; its biographies so strangely exhibit human nature at its best and almost at its worst; while the conflicts of opinion which it describes are so bewildering and painful, that the earnest-minded reader is too often disheartened and repelled.
