Urban Legends Church History
surveys forty of the most commonly misunderstood events of church history, from the period of the early church through the modern age. While these “urban legends” sometimes arise out of pure falsehood and fabrication, they are often the product of exaggerated recounting of actual historical events. With a pastoral tone and helpful explanations of where the error originally occurred, authors John Adair and Michael J. Svigel tackle legendary misconceptions like the early church worshiping on Saturday, or the unbroken chain of apostolic succession. Urban Legends of Church History
will help readers avoid misunderstanding key events from church history, and guide them in applying the principles that have characterized the Christian church since first century.
