Excerpt from A History of the Church, From the Birth of Christ to the Present Time: Embracing an Account of the Lives of the Apostles, and Many Eminent Christians and Reformers That Have Lived Since Christ
IT is the design of this compilation to provide the church in the evening time with the means of ao quainting itself with the accurate history of the church. This volume covers the periods from the commence ment of the Christian era to the present time. Many of the Christian writings of the obscure opening era of the church's history have perished altogether. This, however, increases the value of the fragments which remain, and serves to throw light upon the church's history of that period. With a view to accommodating those who do not have the time or do not wish to read extensive and unabridged ecclesiastical histories, we have condensed the present volume, yet not leaving out anything of importance.
