7 Awesome Ways to Learn Church History Online for Free

e0vmeka Uruguayan journalist Eduardo Galeano once said “History never really says goodbye. History says, ‘See you later.’ Well it depends on what history we want to welcome. Its either mistakes or victories of the past that will be knocking at our doors.  However we can anticipate the comeback when we look at history. Christians should study church history. Here’s 7 ways to learn church history without breaking the bank. Of course, nothing can beat having a seminary training about church history and I highly encourage you to do so. However, for those who can’t go to a seminary or even buy a book in church history, this list can be a good place to know about this important subject:

1. Get church history daily in your inbox – Christian History Institute offers a daily  It Happened Today sort of a”this day in history” thing simply by subscribing to their e-mail list (scroll down to the bottom till you find the subscribe box.)

2. Listen to a 5 minute podcast – Aside from the cool Cranberries intro, this weekly podcast on church history hosted by Dr. Stephen Nichols takes a slice of church history and discusses how God works to events, people and places and how it’s relevant to our time. 5 Minutes of Church History is non technical in approach and because it’s brief, you can easily tuck it to your podcast listening list.

     Now for some hardcore stuff….

3. Watch lectures over Youtube – Ryan Reeves church history lectures are superb. If you check his Youtube channel, you’ll see his 64 k subscribers and some of his 20-30 minute videos had been viewed 500 k times. Very impressive. His videos consist of pictures and notes for viewers to catch the important words, names and events. The audio and images are great. Ryan Reeves  Historical Theology for Everyone is a must watch!

If you want, however, to see an actual lecture, you can also check Carl E. Trueman’s lectures on The Reformation presented in The Master’s Seminary.

4. Listen to a Sunday School series – Tommy Nelson of Denton Bible Church, gives a series simply titled Church History, in engaging and exciting way, considering the dread of studying historical stuff.  The audio quality is good and you can feel the churchy setting to were this series is given.

Moving to Sermon Audio, I would like to recommend two Sunday School series that tackles church history. First is from Brian Borgman,pastor of Grace Community Church Nevada, A Survey of Church History . Love the audio quality and how Borgman articulate the teachings which are not intimidating. Last one is from Dr. James White Church History Series .  If you know James White, his debates and podcast, you’ll find this at par from what he dishes out. The audio quality is not that good but if you like what you hear and like White you’ll gonna stick around for this series.

5. Download a Seminary app – Reformed Theological Seminary has an app that you can download in various app stores for free. The lecturer is Dr. S. Donald Fortson and you can access these lectures on i-Tunes U from your i-phone and i-Pad.

6. Sign up on an online seminary level course – You can check out audio lectures of Ancient and Mediaval History and Reformation and Modern History courses at Covenant Theological Seminary. You have to create an account to access it complete with downloadable MP3, transcript and study guides. You can check other seminaries that has church history courses by clicking here.

7. Dowload e-books on Church History – If your’re not into the audio and video lectures, you can download free e-books on church history. A simple search on Mogernism.com yields some books that you can check out.

So thats my list, so what’s yours? Kindly comment in the comment section on what should be added on the list. By the way, I would like to thank Dead Men Community, TCB Family and the Baptist Review Facebook Groups for giving me some of what has been included on the list. It really helped me to write this article and gave me ways to self-study Church History.

5 Things I Love About YouVersion Bible App

7lusaz81Recently, my wife bought an i-Phone and she starts downloading apps. She asked me what Bible app should she download and use. Without hesitation I said YouVersion app. I love it and I think millions of users of this great Bible app will agree with me with these 5 reasons (And oh before I forgot it’s their 10 year anniversary and here’s how we can celebrate with the app):

Multiple Bible versions and Translations. Can you imagine a Bible app that has tons of Bible versions and translations free to download? Well YouVersion has it. With multiple versions and translation you can compare and understand any given passages. Also you can listen to the audio of the Bible.

Tracks and encourages you in your Bible reading. Keep on track with the progress of your Bible reading time by its built-in tracker. It gives you the streak and weeks of how many times you read your Bible. You also receive a “Verse of the Day” in this great app.

Add a friend or interact with someone on the app.  It’s like Facebook but with Bible verse or devotional plan progress as status. You can like and comment on you friends status. You can invite others from Facebook to check out this app and enjoy God’s Word.

Devotional plans and Video.There a many devotional plans you can use in YouVersion. You can choose a plan base on a passage of Scripture, topic you want to explore or if going through something your life. Videos are also awesome.  You can check some gospel presentation and some clips from The Bible Project.

Share the Bible over social media. Like any other Bible app, you can share God’s Word over Facebook or Instagram. What makes it cool is that you can post the verse with an image so it can be eye catching to your friends.

There you have it the 5 things I love about YouVersion app. I hope you check the app over your App Store or Google Play. God bless as you delight on God’s Word.
