III. Early Modern & American History (Yr. C)
Note regarding The Mystery of History, taken directly from the Protestant author's preface: "The time period of this volume includes the Protestant Reformation. I have prayerfully sought to write with sensitivity toward Protestants and Catholics alike in regard to this piece of tumultuous history. I have approached the Reformation by presenting doctrine and theology of both Protestants and Catholics, along with the history of disagreement and bloodshed between them. I have included "heroes of the faith" in both Protestant and Catholic circles. However, the differences between these groups are vast and divisive. It is beyond the scope of this book to bridge them. As I am a Protestant, I have undoubtedly written with a bias toward Protestantism, though I have tried to in no way offend or attack modern-day Catholicism. Forgive me if I have. I hope all my readers will take the information contained here and use it for its historical value and for examining their own faith, whatever it may be."
