Eusebius Ecclesiastical History

Eusebius Ecclesiastical History

by Eusebius (translated by C F Cruse)

Eusebius Ecclesiastical History is one of the classics of early Christianity and of equal stature with the works of Flavius Josephus. Eusebius chronicles the events of the first three centuries of the Christian church in such a way as to record a vast number of vital facts about early Christianity that can be learned from no other ancient source. When Eusebius wrote his Ecclesiastical History, his vital concern was to record facts before they disappeared, and before eye-witnesses were killed and libraries were burned and destroyed in persecutions by Rome. He faithfully transcribed the most important existing documents of his day so that future generations would have a collection of factual data to interpret. Thus Eusebius (c. A.D. 260-340) richly deserves the title father of Church history. "More readable." This is the only full edition of "Eusebius' Ecclesiastical History" that has been retypeset in modern, easy-to-read type. Archaic words have been modernized and the punctuation has been updated according to contemporary standards. "Easier to use." The Loeb numbering system (now the standard way to cite "Eusebius' Ecclesiastical History)" has been added to make it easier to locate passages referred to in other reference works. Also, all citations and cross-references have been updated from Roman numerals to the modern form of citation. "More complete." The complete text of all ten books of Eusebius is included. Also included is "Historical View of the Council of Nicea" as well as translations of related documents.

Letters on Revival

Letters on Revival

by Ebenezer Porter

Revival swept through the churches of New England and other parts of the United States between 1798 and 1808. These letters of Ebenezer Porter, an eyewitness of the revivals, display two characteristics not always found together: warm zeal to see the church revived, and wise moderation in resisting tendencies to fanaticism. Porter outlines the characteristics of the revivals he had witnessed, the means used for the conversion of sinners, hindrances to revivals, the exercises of those hopefully converted, and the longer-term effects of the revivals on the churches. He also deals helpfully with new theories that were appearing on the subject of divine influence in the conversion of sinners. The result is a permanently valuable guide to the nature and effects of revivals of religion. Ebenezer Porter served as a Congregational minister in New England and became the first President of Andover Theological Seminary in Massachusetts in 1827.

The Ulster Awakening

The Ulster Awakening

by John Weir

One hundred and fifty years ago the Spirit of God was poured out in great abundance upon the churches and people of Ulster, one of Ireland's four ancient provinces. From humble beginnings among praying people in a Country Antrim village, a mighty spiritual movement spread rapidly across the whole province, transforming the lives of many thousands in countryside and city alike and bringing with it radical social changes that lasted for several generations. Writing in 1860 to defend the Awakening against the attacks of a sceptical press, John Weir, an Irish Presbyterian minister, skilfully weaves correspondence from the leading figures of the Revival into his truly fascinating, eye-witness account of the soul-stirring events of 1859.
