As Orthodoxy was replaced by Pietism and then by a sweeping Rationalism, the church found itself ministering to an increasingly secular society in the 17th and 18th centuries. Dr. Clouse examines the key events that will bring a greater understanding of this fascinating period, in addition to sharpening the reader's perspective on today's church. The author explores the implication of: * the Thirty Years' War; * The rise of Pietism and the Enlightenment; * Colonization and revolution in America; * The French Revolution; * Other critical events. His examination covers the historical antecedents of today's church: Orthodoxy, Pietism, and Rationalism, all of which are still with us in some form. How the church responded during this period, and what were - and often still are - the consequences is superbly detailed in this important work for the Christian who is interested in how the church became the way it is.
