Review: History of the Christian Church: Apostolic Christianity AD 1-100

User Review  - Justin Andrusk - Goodreads

Thoughts this was an excellent and objective survey of Christendom in the apostolic age. The book was not a small read and it covered both the glories of the church as well as responses to some of the churches most antagonistic critics. Can't wait to read the rest of the volumes. Read full review

Page 262 - Protestant countries, once proverbial for sterility and barbarism, have been turned by skill and industry into gardens, and can boast of a long list of heroes and statesmen, philosophers and poets.
