The successful publication of author John Berryman’s “The Bahamas: A Social Studies Course for Secondary Schools (2nd edition)” and “The Bible: A Helping Hand” inspired him to give more to his fans and the book enthusiasts. In The Church: Defining Moments In Its Western Tradition, he invites the readers to follow and understand the history and story of the church as the book portrays its journey.

This book contains a plethora of significant religious historical information. The Church: Defining Moments In Its Western Tradition is an informative and interesting narrative that unveils to readers the journey and evolution of the church. An embodiment of Christianity, the human expression of Christ’s message and the promise to succeeding generations across two millennia, the church provides the framework for the religious, political, and social evolution of Western society and even beyond.

In The Church: Defining Moments In Its Western Tradition, Berryman has written an enlightening masterpiece that reveals the spiritual dynamic which has caused many to marvel not simply that the church sustained its hold over the Western World for close to two millenia, but that its tender shoots survived the upheavals in its Mediterranean nursery over the first 250 years or so of its existence. Readers will learn more of its defining moments that will help them understand the church’s history and its ongoing story.
