    My first disappointment was that this was not a story of the world Christian church, but a story of the church mostly in Great Britain, with an emphasis on evangelicals. My second disappointment was that someone apparently gave the author a list of things that anger/annoy me, and he ticked off as many of them as he could: sexist language and attitudes, paternalism toward non-Westerners, oversimplification of history, portrayal of people as "good" or "bad" and the presentation of all their action My first disappointment was that this was not a story of the world Christian church, but a story of the church mostly in Great Britain, with an emphasis on evangelicals.

Ugh.

    Attempt this book only if you are interested in history or have an average knowledge of general world history,at least..Or you would find it monotonous and boring to follow. Having said that, if you love history and you are interested in the story of the Church,I completely recommend this book as a starter to your quest. Amazing,relevant and concise information about most of the Great Christian leaders/teachers and doctors of the Church that have directly/indirectly contributed to its growth.

A chronologically well written book,and although its just a collection of biographies..it gives a good insight into the struggles the Church underwent through the different eras. However,the author could have included or mentioned a few fathers of the Oriental and Eastern Orthodox Churches,post council of Chalcedon period...

    This gave a good Timeline of Christian History, I was disappointed that they mixed Catholicism in as Christian and that they included some that preached a different gospel in the Pentecostal movement. It did a lot to discredit the Author's writing in my opinion that distinctions were not made.

    A very helpful introduction to the key figures and events in the history of christianity. It was, I think, my first book on church history, and I really enjoyed it.
