    This book does a wonderful job in looking at the life of the Constantine of history. Leithart presents a compelling case for Constantine being a true Christian who sought to live out his Christian faith as Roman emperor. I admire the way that Leithart focuses in on the empirical evidence concerning the life of Constantine and sifts out elements of myth. In all, Leithart presents a balanced look a the life and person of the historical Constantine and his influence on early Christianity.

    I have always wondered whether Constantine deserved the demonizing he often receives. Leithart's book presents a convincing portrayal of Constantine the believer, and helps us get under the skin of this ancient emperor. As the title suggests, much of the book is a defence of Constantine against other less positive portrayals that have emerged, and for the most part Leithart deals with these thoroughly and convincingly. A very interesting book.
