Couple of errors.

In a couple of places, BCE dates were give that should have been CE. In Chapter one it states that a lot of Christian writings were destroyed 150 BCE. Kind of hard to do. Also, it described Electors in Germany as the people who elected the Pope. The Conclave of Cardinals elects the Pope. The Electors in Germany elected the Holy Roman Emperor.

This is the information Bible lovers want to know.

The reading of this book was superb. The content in it was just as good. A great book for any student of scripture and lover of history.
