Very easy to understand, yet detailed in its information. I've listened to it three times in order to understand everything presented.

Very Good Intro

This certainly is not going to be on any best seller lists but if you are interested in a very good overview of Christianity, its history and its practice I would highly recommend the book. As the title suggests it is short and concise. Of course trying to cover a large topic in a short book inevitably means that the material can be a bit dense at times. I found myself rewinding to listen to sections in order to clarify some of the ideas. Regardless I like the format and really enjoyed this book. I was sufficiently impressed that I will be taking a look at some of the other "Very short Introduction" books which are available.
