A firm grasp of church history provides believers with encouragement to press on in the midst of difficulties, gives us warnings to avoid the mistakes of the past, and provides us with a better understanding of the men, women, and events that God has used to further His kingdom.
But where should a person begin in their study of the history of the church? Which events and eras are especially important, and who are some of the people that every Christian should be familiar with?
On this episode of the podcast we are joined once again by Troy Frasier, co-host of the Revived Thoughts podcast, which brings you some of history’s greatest sermons along with fascinating backstories about the life and times of the men who preached them.
In this conversation we will discuss why studying church history is important for every believer, which eras are especially interesting, key events that you should know about, and the best ways to further educate yourself about the history of Christianity.

As we mention on the podcast, you can benefit a lot by reading primary resources written during important events and by key figures in church history.
At the same time there is value in getting a broad overview of church history. This highly-recommended book will give you just that in a very readable, approachable way.
