An amazing overview of ~500 years of Christianity from a most articulate and concise professor. Never once was the awful "But we don't have time for...." uttered! This story is a global tale, woven together with insight, connecting very many strands of Christianity over time. I have learned very much but also that no church denomination, break-away group or national church is known mainly through the centuries for its unrelenting demonstration of love. There is more to do!

What I really liked about this was the absence of condescension towards believers: Worthen tells a very comprehensive story and never forgets that these experiences are extremely important and often life changing. Also the global orientation was very refreshing: Christianity is much more than American televangelists and the series provides excellent coverage of contemporary Christianity in Africa, Latin America and Asia.
