Discover the story you’re already a part of.

Through thirty-three objects, Tim Challies explores the history of what God is accomplishing in this world–whether through princes or peasants, triumph or trial. Each object offers a tangible link between the present and the past, between the Christians of the 21st century and those who lived and died in centuries past.

Available in book and video formats.

Our historic roots are being neglected.

Each generation suffers from self-obsession, and we’d do well to keep one eye on the past, to consider not only where we wish to go, but where we have been. Christianity has a long and storied past that testifies to God’s enduring grace, and even though so much of Christian history has passed away and many of its people and objects have been lost to time, precious relics and locations remain.

33 fascinating objects. 1 amazing story.

Join author and pastor Tim Challies as he embarks on a three-year journey spanning multiple continents and some of the most unusual places in the world. Tim introduces you to thirty-three carefully selected objects that help you understand the long and complicated history of Christianity in a unique and creative way.

Beginning with Jesus and the early church, Challies looks at:

The importance of graffiti on an ancient jail cell
The creedal significance of a carving on a museum statue
The enduring importance of ancient manuscripts and books
....and much, much more!
