    This is a great bullet-point type journey through the history of the Christian church. I highly recommend it for those interested in church history, but don't have the stamina to make it through a lot of the dry literature on the subject.

    So many church history books intimidate by sheer size, and after all, there is a lot of very interesting and important information to cover. This book states up front that it isn't a full history, just a 'highlights' version. And that is always a subjective matter, what is the most important or most representative people or events to include. But it's a great way to keep your book to a small size, and this book is very approachable. You can have fun deciding if you agree about the top 100 events, or noting what you would drop and add, if you are a history buff!

    I did enjoy reading through this book. It gives a quick and concise description of events and people. A good reference book.

    Greetings, Friends: From the serious Christian historian scholar to the simply interested, this excellent work is truly a great addition to any library -- and that goes from my 1,000+ church/personal library to the very smallest. Even though I did not agree with every single "event" in the past 2 millennia, I must confess to you that regardless of the vast reservoir of Christian knowledge God has given me, I even learned great things of our Christian heritage from the very few "events" I did not agree with. My humble advice: If you can spare the $, and you would like to know a great scope of why we as Christians have come to be the way we are today, I would suggest purchasing this very fine book. I do *not* believe you will be disappointed.Best regards,Keith "On Fire" Campbell
