Dr. Timothy Paul Jones is a brilliant young biblical scholar who helps simplify the complex. His [resources] are great and sorely needed during our time when many are biblically illiterate and know even less about Church history.
Church history is not about names, dates, and facts. It is about the flesh and blood people of God and the life and death issues that have shaped their struggles and joys for two thousand years. Christian History Made Easy makes this story come alive. I recommend it enthusiastically!
Timothy Paul Jones' writings are always engaging, compelling, and often humorous. He captivates me with everything he writes. this isn't the first great book that Timothy's written, and it won't be the last. Make certain you don't miss it!
