Reading Together: New Book!

7 Summits

Starting Monday April 18th we will be reading through Seven Summits In Church History by Jason G. Duesing.

Here is the description from Amazon:

The history of Christianity is like that of a great mountain range, with immense length comprised of peaks and valleys, enduring both stormy and prosperous weather. Certain figures in this history have risen to high peaks and represent significant moments in theological development. These figures are the hinge for major swings in the expansion of Christian thought. Duesing offers a quick, yet insightful introduction to seven of the highest peaks worth climbing in church history. His biographical summaries include Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Hubmaier, Edwards, Carey, and Henry. By examining the peaks of Christian history in these seven figures, this book engages several key issues without overwhelming the reader. It is brief but packed with pertinent information any student of history should know.

This book is NOT an in depth look at any of the men, but gives us a high level view at their impact. I fully expect it to give me an appetite to dig deeper into each person. I expect the same for you.

You can buy the paperback -or- Kindle version HERE.

Here is how “Reading Together” works:

  • We will read one chapter a week.
  • I will post observations on this blog each Friday.
  • You will be asked to share your observations and engage with others through the “Comments” section to my Friday post.
  • Together we will allow Dr. Duesing to take us on a brief journey!

Will you join us? This is open to ANYONE that wants to join so please share this post and get others to subscribe. Please post here in the comments field of this post to say that you are “In.”

Obedience is Mine. Results are His.
