A choice confronts Christians in every generation: Will we stray from the truth to gain the world’s approval or stay the course at all costs? Here, the story of the American church can help us.
In his new teaching series, Dr. Stephen Nichols surveys the history of American Christianity, examining the lives of figures who accommodated to the spirit of the age and others who maintained their commitment to God’s Word. By relying on the Lord and learning from the tragedies and triumphs of those who have gone before, we can be better prepared to be faithful disciples wherever we are.
This approachable and concise overview of American church history is an excellent tool for growing Christians, teachers, pastors, and small group leaders. Order your copy today to study on your own or with a group.
