Not as good as the Koran. You sort of know the Pope doesn't follow it that closely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Would the white man have been so good at war and taken over the world if it ..., 2 Jan. 2016

A fascinating account of the tortured and violent history of Christianity. Would the white man have been so good at war and taken over the world if it had not been for their schismatic religion which makes them fight each other tooth and nail over very little at the drop of a hat when they took it seriously? Just think: if Henry VIII had been Muslim his taking another wife after Katherine of Aragon would not have been such a big big deal. Henry could either have divorced her, or taken up to four wives and at least one of them would have given him a son. If Henry and the Pope had been able to resolve this issue like civilised Muslims, there would have been no need for the Reformation and the European Wars of Religion, and many Christians would not have been burnt at the stake or been beheaded. Quite a thought, eh?

The format is perfect because it explains the background, sets the scene, tells the story and asks to what extent the ideas of the French Revolution have influenced Western thinking. Highly recommended.
