I am considering Schaff's history of the Christian Church. If I buy it, I intend to read the whole thing, so it's no small commitment. I am somewhat acquainted with the bare basics of Church history, and am wondering if others have found his work to be both beneficial and doctrinally sound.PS: Especially interested to know the views of some of the reformed-minded posters.Thanks!
One time bump*No one?
I have his history along with others such as Edesheims, Nathan Bang, William Hetherington, and etc. You spoke of an investment. I dont know how much you are contemplating spending, but you can purchase all these histories and much more very economically from Ages Software. http://www.ageslibrary.com. I have read some of Schaffs history just for research, not all the way through as I did Gibbons Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, and other histories. This site will give you all you need for church history. I recommend the Master Library. If I may be of assistance you can PM me or email firstname.lastname@example.org.Clint
