Reformation Christianity: A People's History of Christianity, Volume 5

"I am the church, you are the church, we are the church together.” Every child who has ever spent a sultry summer morning at vacation Bible school has learned that song.

It is this tidbit of insight that led the editors at Augsburg Fortress to assemble a series called A People’s History of Christianity. Seven volumes long and organized chronologically, the series encompasses a much wider geographical range than many other introductions to Christian history. It also reflects a current debate among historians about the nature and subjects of church history.
