I found this book wonderful for many reasons; one of those is that I had studied, in isolation, some of the philosophies of Plato and Aristotle, so the way the author has blended these together into a history of Thought and Religious Thought and the move away from the Greek philosophical traditions, for me opened up a whole new way of considering these elements in a more homogeneous whole.
This is an absolutely wonderful book; I have never read such a clear and insightful analysis of the Trinity and the Nicene Creed; topics which, you'd have to admit, are not easy to digest, and which the author has brilliantly laid out for a careful reader to be able to understand and appreciate. The critical hinge date of AD 381 suggested by the author is very carefully and thought-provokingly argued. This book is certainly one to be read by anyone interested in the history of the Western and Eastern Churches, and the divergence of the Roman Empire and the Byzantine Empire. Totally utterly recommended.
A very well-written book and accessible to the layman. A must read for the serious student of Church history.
