Author: Mindy Withrow, Brandon Withrow
Release Date: December 05, 2005
Let history come to life—just the way it should! Read the stories of the Medieval church and discover how the young Christian church moved into a new and dangerous era from Gregory I to Wyclif and Huss.
Discover the crusades, the spread of Islam, and the beginnings of the university and the Protestant Reformation. The church struggles against persecution and problems from inside and out. Learn from the mistakes and errors of the medieval church, but also learn from their amazing strengths and gifts.
Extra features throughout this book look deeper into issues such as Islam; division between East and West; the crusades; the first university; medieval creeds and councils; and the Renaissance.
This is the second in a series intended to cover the history of the Christian church through its people. They are written with 9-14 year olds in mind but the modern, relaxed and enthusiastic style is infectious!
