We are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

InterVarsity Histories

"Christians could go into a church anywhere in medieval Western Europe and find the same symbols, rites, or forms of worship, and the same religious language, Latin.  

Although the Western Church eventually stretched from the Atlantic Ocean to the borders of  Greece, and from Scandinavia to the border with Islam in the south, almost everyone "belonged" to this community and was consciously a part of it."

-G. R. Evans in the Introduction

Faith in the Medieval World paints a fascinating picture of a turbulent stage of religious history.  The author begins by giving an overview of Christianity in the West, in the middle ages, before looking at the key aspects of medieval faith: the Bible and belief; popular piety and devotion; the Crusades and the idea of 'holy war': politics and the Church; rebellion against authority; and the road to Reformation.

Drawing heavily on the central figures involved such as Gregory the Great, John Wyclif, Peter Abelard, Dante Alighieri and Bernard of Clairvaux --- this book is a must for all those keen to understand one of the most enthralling periods of history. ______________________________
