Tim Challies and His Around-The-World Journey Through Christian History

Does Christian history seem boring to you? Would you like a fun flyover to gain some perspective on your heritage as a Christian?

Perspective is a part of maturity. Christian history can give us and our children perspective on how God’s church has grown and spread out since Jesus walked the earth. Sometimes we can believe that we are the first generation of believers to experience certain questions or conflicts. Christian history reminds us that this is not true.

In this podcast, I talked with Tim Challies about his new book and video series- Epic: An Around-the-World Journey through Christian History.

Tim is a well-known Christian blogger and author. He is married to Aileen and father to three children. In addition, he serves as an elder at Grace Fellowship Church in Toronto, Ontario.

Let’s listen to Tim talk about his around-the-world journey and how it might equip your family to learn church history.
