I purchased this book for a class. However, the information is extremely in formative and easy reading. This is the first time I have taken a class and honestly look forward to the readings. I would highly recommend this book for personal knowledge as well as required reading.
The product met my expectations. Very thorough. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the history of the church starting with 6 BC and into the present. It is long - 500 pages - but it is divided into chapters for the different ages, like the middle ages, the age of the Christian Roman Empire, etc. There is also history of the Muslim faith. I am still reading it but can hardly put it down because I find it so interesting.
