A wonderful introduction to our neglected Christian tradition'
Many Christians today tend to view the story of medieval faith as a cautionary tale. Toooften, they dismiss the Middle Ages as a period of corruption and decay in the church.They seem to assume that the church apostatized from true Christianity after it gainedcultural influence in the time of Constantine and that the faith was only later recovered by thesixteenth-century Reformers or even the eighteenth-century revivalists. As a result, the riches and wisdom of the medieval period have remained largely inaccessible to modern Protestants.
Church historian Chris Armstrong helps readers see beyond modern caricatures of the medievalchurch to the animating Christian spirit of that age. He believes today's church could learn anumber of lessons from medieval faith, such as how the gospel speaks to ordinary, embodiedhuman life in this world. Medieval Wisdom for Modern Christians explores key ideas, figures, andmovements from the Middle Ages in conversation with C. S. Lewis and other thinkers, helping contemporary Christians discover authentic faith and renewal in a forgotten age.
