Church History with Michael Reeves

The Breeze of the Centuries: Introducing Great Theologians - From the Apostolic Fathers to AquinasI recently spent a few full days traveling by car and passed the time listening to numerous messages by Michael Reeves on church history.  Reeves is an excellent teacher and his Church history series will give you an excellent grasp on the crucial figures, issues and writings of the past 2000 years, from Iraneaus and Justin Martyr to Luther, Calvin and the Puritans.

Reeves approach is to break down his talks into particular focuses. First he will talk about the life and historical background of say Thomas Aquinas, and then he will look at Aquinas’ theology by examining his major writings and why they were written.

Reeves looks at the following men of Church history:  Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Athanasius, Anselm, Thomas Aquinas, Augustine, Martin Luther, Zwingli, & John Calvin.

I highly recommend this series as it helps us to see weaknesses in our present day theology. It’s not easily organized, so you have to poke around the Theology Network site to locate all of Reeves audio messages on Church history.
