This is the most amazing book, perhaps the best I've ever read. It gives a fantastic overview of the church since Christ's day. You will find that you have a renewed interest in all things Christian. It is worth paying full price for...and I don't pay full price for ANYTHING!

This book is a large history of the story of the church for today's readers.
It makes history easy to follow and easy to retain by dividing the Christian story into eight parts, each part one of the great ages of the church:

The Age of Jesus and the Apostles
The Age of Catholic Christianity
The Age of Christian Roman Empire
The Christian Middle Ages
The Age of Reformation
The Age of Reason and Revival
The Age of Progress
The Age of Ideologies
