The Story of Christianity: Volume 1: The Early Church to the Reformation by Justo L. Gonzalez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've become more interested in church history lately, though generally I'm not that interested in reading history type books. So I thought I would give this one a try.
I was pleasantly surprised to find it easy and interesting reading. In spite of the size of the book, the story kept me turning pages and moving along in the history of Christianity from the time of Christ.
It did get confusing with pope rivalries happening during the Middle Ages and more than 1 pope being in power at one time and various kings vying for power. But overall, it was an interesting story.
This volume goes up to the Reformation. I've requested the 2nd volume which will continue from the Reformation to modern times.
