It didn’t take long for the ideas of Luther, Zwingli, and many others to ignite a sea change in society at large: peasants revolting, priests and nuns marrying, church art destroyed, heretics on both sides persecuted by church and state, and a philandering king whose search for a male heir would birth the Church of England. Read about one of the most turbulent eras of all of history in issue #118, The People’s Reformation, the second in our Reformation series.

REPRINTED! Christian History Magazine #28 features the 100 Most Important Events in Church History.
As the reform movement spread and splintered across Europe in the mid-sixteenth century, each offshoot searched for and strengthened its identity through various confessions and creeds. On this scene stepped John Calvin, the hopeful priest turned reluctant lawyer who became one of the world's most influential reformers. Read his story along with the story of the divisions, martyrdoms, victories, and disappointments that marked the last half of the sixteenth century in this third Reformation issue of Christian History.
Christian History #50 covers Christianity's overlooked role in the bold venture to gain independence.
They were the wars of our grandparents and great-grandparents. Bloody, nightmarish wars that transformed the face of the globe, claimed entire families, and ushered in the nuclear age. As the world fought to save Western civilization, Christians fought too, in battles both physical and spiritual. Their stories are heart-wrenching, challenging, and touching, and there are some stories we’d rather forget. Read them all in this expanded issue of Christian History on World Wars I and II.
The Catholic Reformation is a story often overlooked by Protestants. In this issue of Christian History magazine, read how some Catholics embraced "evangelical" ideas and helped usher in a new era.
Christian History Magazine #37 covers Worship in the Early Church.
Step into the crowded, smelly cities of the ancient Roman Empire and find how the first Christians lived, worked, played, and worshipped alongside their non-believing neighbors. We’ll uncover the first Christian communities in cities like Rome, Constantinople, Ephesus, and Corinth, where believers were the minority and Rome the authority. Images of the art and architecture of the period help tell their story, and five modern interviewees connect us to modern urban ministry. Order yours today!
