2,000 Years of Christ’s Power
The Full Four-Volume set by N. R. Needham
Volume 1: The Age of the Early Church
The first volume of 2,000 Years of Christ’s Power covers the period from the 1st Century AD to the start of the Middle Ages. From the works of Saint Augustine of Hippo to the first apologetic ever penned, this time in history established the foundations of what we take for granted today.
Volume 2: The Middle Ages
In the second volume of 2,000 Years of Christ’s Power, another side of the Middle Ages shines through. Behold the continued work of Christ, as He built His kingdom through figures such as Thomas a Kempis and John Wycliffe, who lived and struggled during these centuries. This was far from a period of stagnation; rather it was the fire from which the Reformation was kindled.
Volume 3: Renaissance and Reformation
Volume three of 2,000 Years of Christ’s Power, in showing the progression of the Reformation era, and the daring bravery of its figures, presents a period of history from which there are many lessons to be learnt. Not the least of them is, the vibrancy of people’s lives and the courage with which they faced death.
Volume 4: The Age of Religious Conflict
The fourth volume of 2,000 Years of Christ’s Power spans from the 16th to the 18th century. It presents a time from which English Protestantism, Scottish Presbyterianism, and French Catholicism, to name only a few, were birthed and refined. Perhaps few eras have had such a direct impact on the characteristics of our own period of history.

This eagerly-awaited fourth volume has been well worth the wait and, not to pressure our brother scholar, we now look forward to the concluding volume!” — Michael A. G.
