5.0 out of 5 stars It's just history, 8 April 2010
This review is from: A New History of Early Christianity (Hardcover)
In this book Freeman simply treats Christianity as a professional historian would any other subject. Which means using the latest and best research possible, and filling the gaps in that research where necessary with clearly indicated reasoning and best guesses. It would take a very small mind indeed for even a committed Christian to object to this book simply because it isn't based on the assumption that his own faith is correct. Thoughtful Christians will find this book just as interesting as those atheists and agnostics who appreciate Christianity's historical importance.

There is no such thing as "just history".

Did anybody say there was, Dr Dee?

Apologies Dr. Dee I didn't spot the headline when I read the review. My professor of history of 50 years ago would absolutely agree with you
