    Inside this issue you'll find 100 of the Greatest Events in Church History:
  • Titus Destroys Jerusalem (A.D. 70) When the Roman general sacked the temple, the Jews were forced into a new era—and so were the Christians.
  • The Edict of Milan (313) The agreement shifted Christianity from being an illicit, persecuted sect to being a welcome—and soon dominant—religion of the Roman Empire.
  • The First Council of Nicea (325) At stake in the church's first general council was the simplest,yet most profound, question: Who is Jesus Christ?
  • Athanasius Defines the New Testament (367) His letter is the earliest authoritative statement to fix the New Testament as we know it today.
  • Augustine Converts to Christianity (386) A brilliant, profligate professor of rhetoric became the church's leading theologian for centuries to come.
  • Jerome Completes the Vulgate (405) This Latin translation stood as the preeminent Bible text for centuries—and set the standard for future translators.
  • The Council of Chalcedon (451) If Jesus was truly God, how could he be truly human as well? Leo the Great helped guide a critical council to a clear answer.
  • Benedict Writes His Monastic Rule (540) His flexible, compassionate guidelines for Christian community forever shaped monastic life—and influenced Western society.
  • Vladimir Adopts Christianity (988) The pagan prince of Kievan Rus' embraced a new faith, leading to the Christianization of the Ukrainian, Russian, and Byelorussian peoples.
  • The East-West Schism (1054) Long-standing differences between Western and Eastern Christians finally caused a definitive break, and Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox still remain separate.
  • Pope Urban II Launches the First Crusade (1095) Waves of pilgrims and soldiers embarked for the Holy Land, beginning an era of exploration, conquest, defeat, and folly.
  • Thomas Aquinas Concludes His Work on Summa Theologiae (1272) The massive treatise set forth a theological system so influential it has been declared eternally valid.
  • The Great Papal Schism (1378) When two popes, and later three popes, vied for supremacy, the medieval church entered a dramatic, forty-year crisis of authority.
  • Gutenberg Produces the First Printed Bible (1456) Using his revolutionary invention—printing from movable type—he made the Scriptures potentially accessible to every person.
  • Luther Posts the 95 Theses (1517) An obscure monk invited debate on a pressing church issue—and touched off a history-shattering reform movement.
  • The Diet of Worms (1521) Was the wayward Luther free to dissent? A German council rendered a judgment.
  • The Anabaptist Movement Begins (1525) Hated by Protestants and Catholics alike, these "radical reformers" wanted to not merely reform the church but restore it.
  • The Act of Supremacy (1534) Breaking from Rome, the English Parliament declared King Henry VIII "the only supreme head on earth of the Church of England."
  • John Calvin Publishes Institutes of the Christian Religion (1536) Either adored or abhorred, the reformer and his teachings live on in his monumental work.
  • The Council of Trent Begins (1545) Responding to the Reformation, the council charted the Catholic church's course for the next 400 years.
  • Publication of the King James Bible (1611) A team of scholars produced an English Bible translation unsurpassed in linguistic beauty and longevity.
  • John and Charles Wesley Experience Conversions (1738) They were ordained ministers and missionaries. Then their hearts were "strangely warmed," and their changed lives gave rise to a worldwide movement.
  • The Great Awakening Peaks (1740) A mighty wave of revival washed across North America, forever altering the religious landscape.
  • The Second Vatican Council (1962) In an epochal council, the Catholic Church undertook its most searching self-examination ever and renewed itself for a modern world.
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Leads the March on Washington (1963) A Baptist preacher had a dream that guided one of the most profound social movements of our times.
