Coming Soon: A Simple Explanation of Church History

My latest contribution to Concordia Publishing House’s stellar A Simple Explanation tract series comes out in a few short weeks! I’m overjoyed to announce that CPH let me tackle A Simple Explanation of Church History, which was a challenge and a joy to work on.

This pocket-sized tract offers a super-fast survey of nearly 2,000 years of church history, from the Early Church to the current postmodern moment, with a special emphasis on the “genealogy” and development of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. With notes on everything from Benedict to to Bonhoeffer, from Odoacer to the Orthodox Lutheran fathers, this zippy little booklet is a great jumping off point for laypeople interested in an introduction church history from a Lutheran perspective.

You can preview and order in print or ebook on CPH’s website here. At the time of writing, there is a 15% off discount while it’s still in preorder!
