Fascinating book - everything viewed exclusively through Christian lenses, but thoroughly researched, and interesting conclusions drawn. ( )

Palmer is a great writer who kept the history interesting and kept the pace of the book moving. I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest either in the history of religion or in the history of Britain. Secular history buffs won’t feel preached at and should enjoy a different perspective on British history.
