About Stephen Nichols - 5 Minutes in Church History
5 Minutes in Church History, hosted by Dr. Stephen Nichols, is a weekly podcast that provides an informal and informative look at church history. Join us each week as we take a brief break from the present to go exploring the past. Travel back in time as we look at the people, events, and even the places that have shaped the story of Christianity. Each podcast offers an easily digestible glimpse of how the eternal, unchangeable God has worked in the church over prior generations, and how this can encourage us today. This is our story—our family history. 5 Minutes in Church History is an outreach of Ligonier Ministries.
“Today you burn a goose, but in one hundred years a swan will arise which you will prove unable to boil or roast.” Recorded on location at the burial place of Johannes Zacharias, the bishop of Erfurt, Dr. Stephen Nichols tells the story of the Goose and the Swan.
