Readable survey with excellent illustrations. ( )

I wish I could give this six stars. This is far and away the best book I have ever read (and, I think, will ever read) on Christian history. The illustrations are great, the explanations insightful, and the flow and pace are perfect. Hart tells the story of Christianity from its beginnings all the way to today, never missing an important event and all the while subtly undermining the fallacious myths of Christianity's modern-day detractors (the "assassination" of Hypatia, the "persecution" of witches, the "attacks" on scientists, etc.). Unlike most other history texts, Hart also doesn't forget to include the Christian world outside of Europe -- reminding us of the frequently forgotten stories of the Assyrian, Ethiopian, and Indian Churches. If anyone wants to learn about the history of Christianity -- this is THE book to read. ( )
