Churches, Revolutions & Empires : 1789-1914 by Ian J. ShawThis week we have several bloggers participating in a book review blog tour for Churches, Revolutions and Empires by Ian J. Shaw (Christian Focus, 2012). Excerpts and links to the reviews will appear below as they are available:

“For anyone desiring to learn more of Church history, this book is a great addition to your library. I learned a lot from this book and I can’t recommend it enough. I give this book five stars!”
Alex Houston (

“Shaw is judicious in his historical judgments and writes in an accessible way. Thus I would recommend this book to any thoughtful Christian who would like to understand how to engage the culture we live in. And of course theological students would find this a helpful resource for research.”
James Matichuk (

“You can’t be ignorant of this period and still be informed today–historically and theologically. Shaw’s analysis was helpful, concise, but still filling. The style was readable but slightly more academic than your entry level history book. I would recommend this book for just about anyone who wants a refresher on their world history during this period.”
Matthew Sims (

“Want to dig into the interactions of churches, revolutions, and empires? Do you think that type of material would interesting? Then welcome to my world—and you’re on to the right book for that: Churches, Revolutions, and Empires: 1789-1914 by Ian Shaw.”
Doug Hibbard (

Churches, Revolutions, & Empires is a fascinating study. It clearly represents fine historical scholarship and shows the development of the church through a very turbulent period in history. Readers who want to see how the modern world has been shaped into what it is now will find very suggestive analysis throughout Shaw’s work.”
Nate Claiborne (

“I highly recommend [Churches, Revolutions & Empires] for those who are interested in history. It is not light reading, but it is good reading.”
-Roger Leonhardt (
