Christian History Made Easy (12 DVD Sessions) Presenter: Dr. Timothy Paul Jones
Christian History Made Easy (12 DVD Sessions)
Presenter: Dr. Timothy Paul Jones
What happened after Acts 28? One topic a Christian often lacks to study, I must admit, is Christian History. Most Christians cannot name more than five Christian Theologians who had great influence in church history, but can easily name more than five players in the NBA or NFL Hall of Fame.
I greatly appreciated the fact that in these 12 sessions, Dr. Timothy Paul Jones opened and closed with Gospel-centeredness, that it is God’s will to bring the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to His people.
I have learned how to answer those who ask me about church persecutions by watching one of the videos. I have learned that during the times of persecution in the early church, God opened more doors for Christians to continue their mission in bringing the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
If you want to know what happened after Acts 28, get these 12 DVD sessions and learn for yourself and share them with your church.
Very well done in content and style
2000 years of history is a BIG topic, but this does a great job of pulling out the salient, interesting, and thought-provoking issues in Christianity through the centuries. The style is modern, with plenty of teaching resources in the kit. I happen to like the fact that the DVD, PowerPoint presentation, and the books do not repeat the same thing... giving me plenty of options for emphasis as a teacher, and not just repeating the same thing 3 times in the class.
I am backing up my preparation with "Christianity Through the Centuries" and "A History of Christianity", and I find that Dr. Jones has done an excellent job of engaging and summarizing. There is nothing "dry" about his work !
Christian History made Easy and INTERESTING!
This is a great study that puts all the information into a format that is interesting and fun to teach. As a teacher, I would also add that the pieces (leader's guide, DVD, downloadable materials) do not match (content wise) and there is some work to be done to bring it all together.
Our students at church (45 people) are really enjoying this course. History buffs and "regular" people all find it
interesting and come back each week. It is also interesting and fun for the teacher - I highly recommend this study.

Review by: Randy Brown, Bible Buying Guide Blogger - February 25, 2013
This is a very good series on Church history. It’s not too long but still covers the basics. It’s taught well and has many great supporting materials. This series is not overly doctrinal, but there is some doctrine taught- especially in the study guides (which include the creeds). Like all study material, I caution readers to do their own study of doctrinal points. This is an easy series to follow and has plenty of good quality teaching, visuals, and activities. I highly recommend Christian History Made Easy Complete Kit from Rose Publishing. For my full review, visit http://biblebuyingguide.com/christian-history-easy-complete-kit-rose-publishing-review/
