Book Description:


"The History of Protestantism is no mere history of dogmas. The teachings of Christ are the seeds; the modern Christendom, with its new life, is the good tree which has sprung from it. The author tells of the seed and also of the tree, small at first, still growing, and destined one day to cover the earth.
How that seed was deposited in the soil; how the tree grew up and flourished despite the furious tempests that warred around it; how, century after century, it lifted its top higher in heaven, and spread its boughs wider around, sheltering liberty, nursing letters, fostering art, and gathering a fraternity of prosperous and powerful nations around it. The author writes that the History of Protestantism is the record of one of the grandest dramas of all time.
It is true, no doubt, that Protestantism, strictly viewed, is simply a principle. It is not a policy. It is not an empire, having its fleets and armies, its officers and tribunals, wherewith to extend its dominion and make its authority be obeyed. It is not even a Church with its hierarchies, and synods and edicts; it is simply a principle. But it is the greatest of all principles. It is a creative power. Its plastic influence is all-embracing. It penetrates into the heart and renews the individual. It goes down to the depths and, by its omnipotent but noiseless energy, vivifies and regenerates society. It thus becomes the creator of all that is true, and lovely, and great; the founder of free kingdoms, and the mother of faithful churches. The globe itself it claims as a stage not too wide for the manifestation of its beneficent action; and the whole domain of terrestrial affairs it deems a sphere not too vast to fill with its spirit, and rule by its law."       -Adapted from the first chapter

The History of Protestantism is:

  • not only very captivating (hard to stop reading), it also is Scholarly and a great introduction to literature in general
  • a very accurate history of the Western World, especially of the 13th to 17th century
  • the broadest introduction (basically introduction and intermediate) to the Reformation, likely the most educational time in Church History
  • one of the most stimulating books to help God's people to discern and live a life in faith and gratitude
  • possibly the best political textbook (after God's Word), History of Protestantism is a lifetime tool for the whole family
  • an excellent source of teaching the geography of Europe
  • an ideal series to read aloud together as class or family, each having their own copy and taking turns in reading
