[Mark A Noll] -- Explores twelve pivotal events in the history of Christianity ranging from the fall of Jerusalem and the coronation of Charlemagne to the Edinburgh Missionary Conference. The decisive moment regarding significant persons in history helps future generations become associated with the effect they had upon others, such as Hitler’s totalitarian presence or JFK’s charisma. As for decisive moments within significant historical events, photography was able to convey a nation’s emotions at specific historical moments.

    In Turning Points, Noll takes readers on a tour of twelve decisive moments in Christian history, using numerous maps, charts, and illustrations. He also reflects on some twentieth-century events that may someday be considered turning points. This unique approach enables readers to grasp the general flow of Christian history and to understand subtle aspects of the story that are often overlooked.5/5(1). If you are stuck for a book to read on the beach this August, I recommend Stefan Zweig’s “Decisive Moments in History.” Originally published in , Zweig’s book is now largely forgotten.
