    One thought on “History of the Christian Church, 8 vols.

    1. Jacob Young on said:

      Insightful comments. Written in the old style of academic work where the author's opinions are more clearly seen. His devotional comments along the way are very edifying.

    2. Frank Peters on said:

      History of the Christian Church, 8 vols Philip (and David) SchaffVolume 1: The first volume was highly disappointing. At ~850 pages, I was half way through before the author started any history. The first 400+ pages were filled with commentary that I was not very interested in. By the end of the first volume it became evident that the author is interested in telling his own opinions about everything, rather than presenting the history in an objective way. Volume 2: This was a great improvement o [...]

    3. David on said:

      There are about 6844 pages in Schaff's 8 volumes. At my current pace, I will finish in about 4.5 years. The reading is actually quite good, not to academic. Schaff is a conservative and takes a conservative stance toward church history. Stay tuned.

    4. Joel Alvarez on said:

      Most excellent book. Deff recommend all Christians and non-Christians to read it. It provides a rich amount of history and it gives a lot of resources to the reader. I learned a lot in the year I was reading this book. Add to your library and your library will be satisfied.

    5. Daniel on said:

      One of the most rewarding experiences of my life. The Church is One Holy Catholic and Apostolic. Western History is Church History. The History if the World is the extension of the dominion of Christ, through His called out ones.

    6. Will on said:

      A set I believe every Christian ought to have at least looked through. A comprehensive history of the Church from Christ right through to the middle/late reformation

    7. Dave on said:

      8volume set - history of the christian church from the apostles to the reformation. amazing. a LOT of anecdotal stories.

    8. Cory Briggs on said:

      Too much!I will start with the positive: The price for the 8 volumes is very affordable! (About $2.50). Also the Author makes a point of showing you both the positive and negative sides of historical church leaders. That being said here is the negative side: The Author did not always define certain terms or translated certain sections; you were left in the dark at times. Some information seemed in opinion useless. While the Author was honest he did show an extremely strong bias towards Calvin an [...]

    9. Simo Ibourki on said:

      I stoped at 25% of the first volume. This book is more apologetic than critical. In his view miracles and the divine plan are part of history. Everything begins with Christ and everything leads to Him. His view is biased against everything non-christian even though at the beginning he said that a historian must be objective. He hates jews, muslims, heathens, bible critical scholars, non-believers, everyone who doesn't agree that Christ is the center of the universe.

    10. Isaac on said:

      This is a great resource, the best church history history I have found. Rigorous, insightful and clearly discernable commentary (so you can see very obviously where you agree or disagree with Schaff), readable and even compelling. I wish there were a history of this callibre written in the present century. At this stage, this is the place I go to for my history needs - at least up until the point that Schaff covers (late reformation period). Approaching magisterial, five stars. The only big and [...]

    11. Jason Leonard on said:

      I can't imagine what more I could want from a 6000+ page survey of the history of the church. It's hard to believe this was written 100 years ago. The scholarship and detail are outstanding. With most topics, I imagine the interested reader might start here and the go into a more comprehensive study But when the subject matter is the history of the church, I doubt whether a more thorough overview will be produced. I did not read every page; I read a sporadic selection of over 150 chapters and wi [...]

      Most books are rated related to their usefulness and contributions to my research.Overall, a good book for the researcher and enthusiast.Read for personal research- found this book's contents helpful and inspiring - number rating relates to the book's contribution to my needs.

    13. Troy on said:

      Excellent and unbiased as a general history should be. Good commentary on issues related to historical events.

    14. Logan on said:

      Fantastic set, does not read like a typical history book and Schaff traces God's providential work through the church in history.

    15. Keith on said:

      Cited in Apostasy from the Divine church by James L. Barker, 1952,1953,1954 & in one volume in 1960.
