But beyond this there's a lot of powerful insight here, and Macculloch makes excellent sense of a number of episodes and features of Christian history where others have struggled. Take, for instance, his handling of the so-called 'Messianic secret' in the Gospel of Mark, which he convincingly attributes to embarrassment and an anti-Jerusalem stance on the part of the text's author. Anyone wishing for a whistle stop tour of the history of the church, with an amusing and unpredictable guide would enjoy this book!
impressed with his total grasp of the subject and his cross references to other material on the subject.
