Would you consider the audio edition of The Story of Christianity, Vol. 1, Revised and Updated to be better than the print version?
I only know the Audible version. But it's thrillingly told and always engaging. Can't put it down. Every spare minute I have in the car is dedicated to working through this scholarly masterpiece.
Which scene was your favorite?
The early chapters covering the time between the death of the apostles through Constantine were magic
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The stories of the martyrs were captivating
Any additional comments?
I can give this book any higher a recommendation - it is history that doesn't trudge along - but moves almost like a theater piece.

I had asked my friend who is attending seminary for a balanced text on the history of Christianity; this source does all that and so much more. Highlighting the progression of the Church through history and how its actions (both good and bad) impacted and were impacted by the culture it lived in.
While used as a textbox, this is not a difficult read. The narrator does an excellent job, good pace and just the right amount of tonal emphasis.
