The holy Christian church from its remote origins to the present day ( 1912 ) by Robert Matteson Johnston

The holy Christian church from its remote origins to the present day




Robert Matteson Johnston illustrates the origins of the Christian church and its development from greek thoughts till modern times 

Excerpt from the introduction
The attitude of our time towards Christianity has many aspects easier to summarize than to explain. These ranges all the way from the Papal view, with its strict doctrine of inspiration, authority, and discipline, to that other extreme, immediately beyond which lies the non-Christian view, whether hostile or indifferent. Between them the great educated mass of western Europe and America holds an uncertain position with a tendency, perhaps, to shift unevenly towards the two extremes. From the group of the intellectual Catholics, or Modernists, to the least dogmatic of the Protestant sects, there exists a great, vague mass of Christian thought that lacks the definiteness found on either side of it, and about which some general propositions can be formulated.
