The Bible starts with the words "In the Beginning" and Matthew, Luke, and Acts all stress that God is sovereign over history. Much of the Bible is history! So believers should value that God is the sovereign Lord over history. It has a beginning, a trajectory, and a purpose to it. History grounds us in the larger narrative of the world and gives us an identity as the people of God. Here are several resources to get you started.
The Church in History by Kuiper
Introduction to the History of Christianity by Dowley
Silent Witnesses by Garry Williams
Christian Heroes: Then and Now (Series of Biographies)
P&R Publishing has several fictional historical books that teach about church history periods such as "Duncan's War."
