A Nearly Infallible History of Christianity

Being A History of 2000 Years of Saints, Sinners, Idiots and Divinely-inspired Troublemakers

by Nick Page


Price: £16.99
Publisher:Hodder and Stoughton
Published:October 2013
Nick Page has done it again, another cracking book that professes to be humourous, silly and light-hearted whilst being intelligent, erudite and most of all an eminently readable treatise on church history. No really I'm not exaggerating, this book is the perfect starter for anyone that needs to know something about church history and actually wants to understand what they are reading and the reasons why it was so important - or perhaps ultimately wasn't but seemed so at the time! Add to this the great section headers, cartoons and other ephemera it contains and you have a cracking gift or enjoyable read for anyone that wants to know just a little more. Don't be put off by its size - it looks like a weighty tome, but you won't need fortitude to work through it - in fact it won't feel half as long as it looks! A brilliant Christmas gift or just a fun book to read.
