    Invaluable Reference Tool

    This book is a true masterwork and deserves a place of honour in anyone's library. Beginning with the reign of Herod Antipas, Peterson constructs a timeline that relates the evolution of the Western Church while describing people and events in the wider culture. What was notable in the year 1619? John Calvin enunciated the doctrine of irresistible grace, Pope Innocent X condemned it, and the first black slaves arrived in Jamestown. When did Americans first celebrate Thanksgiving? In 1630, as the Catholic church initiated the debate on 'receptionism', the Massachusetts Bay colony was established and the great migration from Europe to America began. Birthdate of John Wesley? 1703. In what year did the US Supreme Court outlaw school prayer? 1963, the same year C.S. Lewis died. This book is readable, comprehensive and endlessly interesting. Highly recommended for students, professors, lay readers and anyone involved in historical research. Certainly, no minister's library is complete without it. Peterson has produced a remarkable scholarly text and succeeded in making it enjoyable.
