Recommended for: middle age history fans if they exist
Read in December, 2007

An interesting essay more than a book. Mr. Brown discusses the development of two empires in what was one Roman Empire, the root causes of Christianity's spread in both and this, of course leads to the success of Islam in much of the region. The book does not totally answer some of my questions but did a good job overall and created some new thoughts for me to research--the major ones dealing with the rise of christianity and the whys of it.
