History Is Not Enough!

Xulon Press, Incorporated, 2007 - 348 pages
The number of evangelicals joining the Roman Catholic or the Eastern Orthodox Church has markedly increased during the last thirty years. Church history definitely played an important role in their decision. This phenomenon is noteworthy because many of these converts are former evangelical ministers.Following the apostles death, how did church life evolve under the influence of sacramental teaching and worship? This study provides a detailed discussion of the two great Christian sacraments: baptism and the Lord 's Supper, and of the ancient churches views concerning salvation, the saints and images. Written with a loving heart, this work is worth reading by everyone interested in authentic Christianity and is particularly helpful for anyone who is tempted to think that age and claims to infallibility are criteria of the true church. Robert L. Saucy, Th.D., Distinguished Professor of Systematic Theology Talbot School of Theology, Biola UniversityBaptized in the First Baptist Church of Van Nuys, California and later ordained to the ministry, Ken began a ministry to evangelize other religions and cults. Eventually, the Guindons moved to France to serve as missionaries with the Torchbearer Fellowship and later with Baptist Mid-Missions. He is now retired and lives in Florida.From the Foreword by David R. Nicholas, Th.D., President of Shasta Bible College & Graduate School in Redding, California."In a day when so many evangelicals are attracted and intrigued by the liturgy, formality and ritual of Eastern Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism, Ken Guindon has done Biblical Christianity an incredible service. Saved and discipled in an evangelical church, his sincere but misguided quest for authentic Christianity led him on a nineteen year pilgrimage into the theological depths of both Orthodoxy and Catholicism. Thankfully, he has returned to sola scriptura, convinced that ultimate truth is found only in God 's infallible, inerrant Word."
