Please try again later. This history book is great to read. You can pick up anywhere in it and get sucked in. It is long, but what do you expect? The construction is a bit flimsy, but with the length of the book, making it with a hardier form would make it huge. I have encouraged many people to get this history and I have given it to a few people who show an interest in knowing more about the process of Christian expansion.
This isn’t a book that justifies the conquest of the world by Christians. It shows the many struggles that the church has faced in its conflicted history. One person found this helpful. This is the second copy of this book I am purchasing. It is a keeper for me. It gives me a wonderful and very descriptive view of the history of the church before it split into all the various denominations.
I have to say this, but I haven’t read the book yet. It came highly recommended, however, so I’m sure I’ll be able to use it. Interesting, good pace, covers a huge amount of material. Of course, it’s years worth of history so it’s not that in-depth and it has its boring parts, but all in all it’s not bad for what’s practically a text book without pictures. A bit dry to read. Some different perspectives in this book.
Some need to be taken with a grain of salt, however, I enjoy a book that opens up my mind. This book is good for the beginner who want to study the history of Christianity.
