    One review I read before writing mine said this book was only good for kindling! REALLY? Why are some people so critical of another brother or sister in Christ's work. We should all be appreciative of the diligence of others, no matter how great or small! OK, I finished preaching, except I agape you anyway! This book will help one's formulation for some of our Church History's foundation knowledge but I recommend for one to delve into any area in the History presented in this book for a much deeper appreciation, like some of the early father's and women's faith, like Perpetua, in some of the worst persecutions and torture to denounce Christ or die! Yeah right kindling, I don't think so!

    The author is a skeptic and his account of Christian history is riddled with skepticism and doubt. Even fundamental basic Christian facts are challenged! If you want a book that challenges your faith at every turn then get this book, otherwise you can find far better accounts of Christian history.

    I did not realize the print would be so small. It is difficult to read. The quality is great and it is beautiful, but it won't be one I use a lot.
