Please join Dr. Barbara Melaas-Swanson for an examination of The History of the Church of Christ by Joseph and Isaac Milner.  This popular and influential book was a key source for Evangelical self-understanding.  Learn how its influence declined as Evangelicalism changed in the late 19th century, and what insights it might offer for modern Evangelicalism. This is the fourth presentation in the year-long "Book Studies" lecture series, part of "From Parchment to Pixels: The Year of the Book."  The next presentation in the series will be given by Dr. Catherine Goebel, Professor of Art History and Paul A.
