Publisher's Summary

The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, Church History, Volume Two: Audio Lectures includes high-quality, live recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject, as well as relevant material from other sources.

Church History, Volume Two: Audio Lectures features and offers a unique contextual view of how the Christian church spread and developed from Reformation times to the present. It did so not in a vacuum, but in a setting of times, cultures, and events that both influenced and were influenced by the church. These lectures help explore the integral link between the history of the world and that of the church.

This lecture features the authors recounting the ups and downs, the triumphs and struggles, of the Christian movement. Primary attention is given to the history of Christianity in the West, but developments in Africa, Eastern Europe, Asia, and Latin America are also covered.

Useful for traditional students, students in distance and online courses, and independent learners alike, these lectures provide a full introduction to church history from the period just prior to the Reformation through the next 500-plus years.

Good content • disappointing delivery

The series is described as audio lectures, but the first speaker (who does most of the narrating) is not lecturing, he is reading. And while the content is good, the reading is not. It feels like he is reading quickly in order to cover lots of material, and he often stumbles over words/phrases. It takes effort to keep listening.

The second speaker presents excellent content in a highly listenable manner.
