Do you hear names of Christians of the past and wonder how they fit into the flow of church history? In The church that Christ built John Legg has captured the key moments of the history of the church from the time following the apostles. His historical snapshots race through the centuries encapsulating the pivotal moments, people, theological controversies, times of revival and blessing, and reveal the amazing way that Christ has preserved, used and encouraged his people.
Having shown you what God has done in the past, Legg will also challenge you to emulate those who have gone before. The lives of men like Polycarp and John Wycliffe, or others like Athanasius, Martin Luther, John Bunyan and Samuel Rutherford, should stir us to more sacrificial service for Christ. May this brief history encourage you to follow in these footsteps.
John D. Legg has retired to Cardiff, South Wales, where he spends his time preaching, lecturing and writing. He and his wife Beryl have four children and nine grandchildren. Previously published books include Any objections?; Dear Tom; and the Welwyn Commentary on Matthew — The King and his kingdom.
