 Church History - Session 2 (Growth from Antioch) by Edgar F. Parkyns

Topic:
Scripture(s): Acts 20,28;2 Timothy 3;Matthew 13  
Description: Parkyns shares four reasons that caused the explosive growth of Christianity in the late 1st century and 2nd century. He identified the growing seeds of failure, such as the tendency to 'bind the gospel with legal restrictions.'

 Church History - Session 3 (After Augustus) by Edgar F. Parkyns

Topic: Church History
Scripture(s): Daniel 2, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-8  
Description: Parkyns commences a new era in the Church from the 4th through 6th centuries. Persecution of the 1st and 2nd centuries phased out as Christianity became universally accepted starting with Constantine (313 AD). New creeds formed to combat new heresies, but even the biblically based creeds turned into dead orthodoxy, which gave rise to counter movements. Parkyns outlines gospel developments, monastic orders, and adoption of paganism by the 'official church' in Europe (particularly the British Isles), the rise to preeminence of the bishop of Rome, and a renewed interest in the Church about the coming of the Antichrist.

 Church History - Session 9 (The Reformation) by Edgar F. Parkyns

Description: Parkyns wades through the 'difficulties which met the flood of new light' of the Reformation.
