Description

Amid the ferment of dissent and the protests of heretics, the church developed most significantly. This guide introduces that history by looking at those periods, all with the trademark Homebrewed Christianity wit.

Questions have preoccupied Christian communities throughout history—Who is Jesus? How should we organize ourselves?—and they’ve been debated at councils and fought on battlefields. Focusing on some of the most and least savory characters in church history, this guide provides an overview of Christian responses to those and other formative questions. Plus, it’s a hoot!

Endorsements

Homebrewed Christianity Guide to Church History is a concise and wonderfully written guide

“Bill Leonard's Homebrewed Christianity Guide to Church History is a concise and wonderfully written guide to reflecting on the legacy of Christianity, written by a man of ethical conviction and scholarly range. Slightly intoxicating and not a little irreverent, this book is highly recommended for teetotalers, social drinkers and everyone in between!” 

Alton B Pollard, III | Howard University School of Divinity

Learned and accessible in equal measure, this is a living history

“In this concise and compelling guide to church history, Bill Leonard offers a perspective that is illuminating to novices and experts alike. By focusing on the margins and the marginalized, Leonard illustrates foundational and formational debates of the past, bringing them into focus and extending their relevance to our contemporary moment. Learned and accessible in equal measure, this is a living history: informing our faith while giving us the tools to engage in the thrilling work of building the church’s future.” 

Amy Butler | senior minister, The Riverside Church, New York City, NY

You’ll never think the same way about Christian character or Christian characters after reading this book.

“Bill Leonard is a reliable witness to the often-overlooked and sometimes quirky parts of Church history that nonetheless have shaped the grand narrative more than we know. Now we know. The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to Church History introduces us to eccentric relatives who were meddlers in the official version of things, but who by the alchemy of time and Spirit have proven their spiritual mettle. You’ll never think the same way about Christian character or Christian characters after reading this book.”  

George Mason | senior pastor, Wilshire Baptist Church, Dallas, TX
