9781563382758: Reclaiming Our Roots -- Volume 1: The Late First Century to the Eve of the Reformation (Reclaiming Our Roots; An Inclusive Introduction to Church History)

Here at last is the true textbook for church history courses. Originally crafted as lectures in this country's premier African American theological institution, Reclaiming Our Roots represents the most inclusive church history text on the market today. It pays special attention to such matters as Christianity in the southern hemisphere, Eastern Orthodoxy, the church among minority cultures in North America, and the role of women in church history.The text includes not just names, dates, and events in church history but also sophisticated theological analyses of the issues that have made history, making it possible to function also in "history of Christian thought" as well as in "introduction to church history" courses.Ellingsen has produced an extraordinarily balanced text, one that provides readers with sympathetic exposure to a variety of credible, scholarly interpretations of the major figures. In this way, he encourages readers to make their own judgments based on the evidence and with the help of primary-source readings that he suggests. Leading questions about the material covered are included at the end of each section.Volume 2 — Martin Luther to Martin Luther King, Jr. (Fall 1999)Mark Ellingsen is Associate Professor of Church History at the Interdenominational Theological Center, Atlanta.

Review:

"This is a book of inclusiveness. The text is down to earth and brings together essential findings of recent marerial in a fresh way for pastors and lay persons." - L.K. Allen, Presiding Elder, Christian Methodist Episcopal Church (L.K. Allen)

"Here is a splendid introductory church history text, rich in detail and theological insight. Ellingsen writes clearly, is sensitive to contexts, and widens the horizons from standard texts by including Eastern Christianity, churches in Asia and Africa, women, and other traditionally marginalized groups. This is an excellent achievement! Enhancing the work are probing questions along the way, to show us what continues to be at stake in the church's ongoing life and thought. A fine survey." - Donald K. McKim, Memphis Theological Seminary (Donald K. McKim)

"...excellent choice for a seminary church history course."—Thomas A. Smith, Loyola University, for Religious Studies Review, October 2000 (Thomas A. Smith Religious Studies Review)

" The book and its companion volume, subtitled Martin Luther to Martin Luther King, are worthy of consideration as textbooks for college courses that survey church history as well as for courses that survey a history of Christian thought."—Duane Warden, Harding University. (Duane Warden Restoration Quarterly)

"This is a book of inclusiveness. The text is down to earth and brings together essential findings of recent marerial in a fresh way for pastors and lay persons." - L.K. Allen, Presiding Elder, Christian Methodist Episcopal Church (Sanford Lakoff)
