The Kregel Guide to Church History by John Hannah provides an excellent overview to church history, beginning with the early church in AD 33 and ending with the postmodern church in the present day.

It covers the main periods of church history in the following chapters:

    1. The Early Church (AD 33-500)
    2. The Medieval Church (500-1500)
    3. The Early Modern Church (1500-1650)
    4. The Late Modern Church, Part I (1650-1800)
    5. The Late Modern Church, Part II (1800-1900)
    6. The Postmodern Church (1900-Present)
    7. The Future of the Church
It also introduces important historical figures, ranging from early church fathers like Iraneus and Justin Martyr in the first century, to secular thinkers like Hegel, Marx, and Darwin in the modern period, and how their ideas have affected contemporary Christianity. It also tracks the many reformations, divisions, and offshoots within Christian history, such as the Pietist Movement in Europe and the First and Second Great Awakenings in the United States.

Very short, concise, and easy to read, this introduction is the perfect place to start in understanding the main events and important figures in the history of the Christian Church.

The focus of all history is captured for us by the apostle Paul when he wrote to the Romans, "From Him and through Him and to Him are all things" (Romans 11:36). History is about the triumph of God. The world is but a stage upon which a grand redemptive drama is being played out.                      —from the Introduction
