The Baker History of the Church series is an accessible and authoritative series that sheds light on the roots of the faith, the foundations of the church, and the sweeping changes occurring during the Reformation. The fifth volume, The Age of Reason, covers the period AD 1570-1789.From the reign of Queen Elizabeth I through the Enlightenment and into the beginning of the French Revolution, the church underwent incredible changes and lost considerable power over the governments of the European continent. The churches of the East were living under Muslim rule and withering slowly. And in the Americas the church took on new forms and marked the beginning of a distinctive experience of Christianity in the New World. Meic Pearse helps pastors, students, and laypeople make sense of it all.Contraportada:
Global Upheavals That Shaped Modern ChristianityThe Baker History of the Church is a multivolume series by world-renowned historians and theologians. Each comprehensive volume offers an even-handed and readable assessment of the main strands of Christianity within its period.The Age of Reason covers 1570-1789, an era in which events such as the French Revolution and movements such as The Enlightenment spawned religious, cultural, and political upheavals that have not ceased to reverberate. The text explores the conflicts between Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox Christianity, as well as schisms within those groups. The rise of sectarianism and Pietism, the spread of the faith to various regions of the globe, and the impact of the Great Awakening all played a large role in shaping the context for today's global church and its quest for relevance in a rapidly changing world.Praise for the Series and Previous Volumes"This judiciously crafted, ecumenical survey of early Christianity by Davidson offers just the right combination of social, liturgical, institutional, and intellectual history."--Douglas A.
