Christianity – The First Three Thousand Years

August 4, 2011

A remarkable book for believers and non-believers alike.  While I would describe myself as agnostic, I remain deeply interested in faiths, their genesis and the people who sustain them.  I am also a fan of MacCulloch’s having read his terrific history of the Reformation a couple years back.  The book focuses as much on the individual personalities as the socio-economic cross-currents that formed and shaped this extraordinary social phenomenon.  Thoroughly recommended.
