The Essential History of Christianity
by Miranda Threlfall-Holmes
Publisher:SPCK (Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge)
Here is two thousand years of Christian history condensed into 140 pages! That may seem an impossible task but Miranda Threlfall-Holmes has produced a highly readable book that surveys the whole Christian era in a broad sweep with essential, but not too much detail. As an introduction to Christian history it would be very useful on a church bookstall or in a church library. It shows us where we have come from and why we have arrived where we are now, as well as giving clues about what might happen in the future. Unlike many church histories, this is very accessible, clearly written, easily read and highly informative.
