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.

Enlightening Historical Account of Christianity

This was the most enlightening historical account of Christianity! It is a wealth of information laid out in a mostly linear sequence of the many struggles and perils of Christianity from the time of Abraham to the 17th century. A MUST-READ FOR CHRISTIANS AND NON-CHRISTIANS ALIKE!!!
