The author is honest to state that every text has a bias. He then states his bias. The historical account given by Mr. North is factual, honest and easy to read. He does not favor one group over another but gives facts that allows the reader to reach his/her own conclusions. Study questions at the end of each chapter generate discussion and help the reader to think through historical situations. Expanded biography at the end of each chapter directs students to further sources. A very good text for a Bible study, Sunday School class, or university general history class.
As a PH.D. candidate in Church History with little Church History background, this text has given me an excellent overview of Church History to prepare me for future classes.
