Do you hear names of Christians of the past and wonder how they fit into the flow of church history? In The church that Christ built John Legg has captured the key moments of the history of the church from the time following the apostles. His historical snapshots race through the centuries encapsulating the pivotal moments, people, theological controversies, times of revival and blessing, and reveal the amazing way that Christ has preserved, used and encouraged his people. Having shown you what God has done in the past, The church that Christ built will also challenge you to emulate those who have gone before. The lives of men like Polycarp and John Wycliffe who were martyred for their faith, or of others like Athanasius, Martin Luther, John Bunyan and Samuel Rutherford whose commitment to God's truth came at great personal cost, should stir us to more sacrificial service for Christ. Perhaps the godliness and zeal of those like Richard Baxter, Robert Murray M'Cheyne, the Countess of Huntingdon and C. H. Spurgeon will be contagious! Church history is all about God's glory. He uses his people as they accept and defend his Word, as they proclaim the gospel in word and deed, as they trust in him and his sovereignty over every area of their lives and as they pursue a life of love and devotion to Christ. May this brief history encourage you to follow in these footsteps.
Legg, after ministering for over 40 years in North Yorkshire and Shrewsbury, retired to Cardiff, South Wales, where he spends his time preaching, lecturing and writing.
