The Perfect Introduction To The Early Church,
This review is from: The Penguin History of the Church, vol.1: The Early Church: The Early Church v. 1 (Paperback)
Henry Chadwick has produced a masterpiece. I have just finished a course on the Beginnings of the church in the Roman Empire and this book helped me pass with flying colours. Chadwick covers every aspect of the life of the early church. The book is perfect for getting an overall view of the early church without going into too much detail. At the same time the book is not too brief. I would recommend this book to anybody interested in the Early Church.
