WHY CHURCH HISTORY MATTERS

Andrew Jones

I started this blog three years ago because I wanted to encourage Christians outside the Academy to value history and to learn to think Christianly about history.   Recently one of my former students at Wheaton posted a thoughtful reflection on the relevance of the history of the church to twenty-first century believers.  Andrew Jones went on from Wheaton to Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and is now doing doctoral work at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.  You can check out his short piece here.  His advice to “learn from our story” is dead on.
