    What separates “The Church From Age to Age” is
    the actual theology found on its pages as well as
    descriptions of church worship life in various centuries.
    Most Church history volumes simply are filled with
    facts and dates and not readings from primary sources.
    Yet this book also highlights major players on the
    stage of church history such as Augustine, Luther,
    and Calvin. Excellent resource for the parish pastor.

    I purchased this book (based on the recommendation of Pastor Weedon on his blog) and have read about 150 pages. It is excellent! I am a simple layman; yet, find it very readable. It’s not just for theologians and pastors. Although written by mostly Lutherans (I think this is true based on the biographical sketches), it appears to be unbiased regarding historical facts. For example, it notes that immersion was the primary mode of early church baptism and belief in millennialism was quite prevalent among early church fathers. So far, so good. I need to stop commenting and start reading.

    As a layman, Age to Age is understandable and informative. People, theologies, geography, politics, worship, and much more, are discussed in sufficient but not overwhelming detail. Reading Age to Age has given me a greater enjoyment and understanding of Divine Service, Bible Study, theology, and personal readings. It has inspired curiosity; I am now reading Augustine’s Confessions; what a delightful discovery! And thank you Cyberbretheran for keeping us informed of CPH publications.
