Dr. Bruce Shelley makes church history come alive in this classic book . . . What separates Dr. Shelley's book from others is his clarity of language and organization.  Church History in Plain Language  treats history as the story of people -- their motivations, the issues they grapple with, the decisions they make -- and the result is that history reads like a story, almost as dramatic and moving as a novel . . . In this third edition, Dr. Shelley brings the story into the twenty-first century, exploring contemporary developments such as changes in the Islamic world, the growth and resurgence of Roman Catholicism, the influence of the Internet on religion, the decline of Christianity in the West, and the spectacular growth of evangelical and Pentecostal Christianity in the southern and eastern hemispheres.
