About-

Called to be Holy in the World presents an overview of the history of Christianity from Pentecost to the present. Written from a Lutheran perspective, this book introduces the reader to key Christian figures and movements as it encompasses a broad view of God's work in the world. The story after all is God's story. As His story it is centered in Christ's cross, but extends around the globe as Christians lived and continue to live out their particular vocations as holy people in the world.
As a resource for students of all ages, this book surveys how Christianity confronted the world and how Christians tried to balance the challenges of living wholly and holy in the world. Historical information on various controversies provides background information for the volume on Christian doctrine in this series, Called by the Gospel. Organized in a unique style, each of the twenty-one chapters deals with one century of Christian history. Discussion questions and reading guides along with informative side bars provide additional educational resource and reference material for further study.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"If the church is to be one and holy, it must be wholly in the world, yet remain wholly united with the Lord. The unity and purity that the church experiences must always be found in its relationship with Jesus who is one with the Father and who has restored us by His blood. There is no other way. The history of the church reflects that tension between unity and purity, between oneness and holiness. It is a struggle we face today. In light of the past, we can have hope for the future as God's people called to be wholly and holy in the world."
