First Sentence
SOME TIME ABOUT THE MIDDLE of the first century AD, and very likely in the year 49, Paul of Tarsus travelled south from Antioch to Jerusalem and there met the surviving followers of Jesus of Nazareth, who had been crucified about sixteen years before. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent effort in detailing the history of
Christianity for non-historians. The author has the credentials and passion for giving the reader the facts in
a well written and entertainig way.
The struggle for the creation of a faith is very well detailed with the early councils and synods of the Church. What Christians believe today and why they believe it is clearly spelt out.
The index could be more thorough and in-text references to
the extensive bibliography would be welcome additions.

Format: Paperback
One of my favourite books. Paul is a brilliant populist historian (no idea how he rates with the 'official' community). But the reader should know he is a committed Catholic. Nontheless, anyone from Anglican to athiest would find this a dazzling read.

Format: Paperback
It amazed me how Johnson could sort through all the details of two millenia of Christianity and present them in an order that was not only rational, but spellbinding. His committment is to honest investigation, yet he demonstrates that despite the truth about some of the horrors of church history, the Christian faith indeed has something to offer the individual and the world.

To survey 2000 years adequately in 500 years is quite an achievement. Most readable and educational, although I wish there were more of Christ and His glory than of religion.

1 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Engstfeld on 31 Oct 2011
Format: Paperback
While the author shows that indeed, he has a vast knowledge of the subject matter, why he refuses to impart any of it on the reader is beyond me. His prose is so purple so as to make a harlequin novelist blush. He seemed more preoccupied with determining whether a certain subject in the history of Christianity was or wasn't "oversexed" as if this point would make some difference. Having read a third of this book and not getting anything out of it, I gave up. I would advise passing on this one.
