wow ,WOW wow another 4 lb book read . This book is to heavy and there is to much material in it to call it a enjoyable read . I knew about Martin Luther from school but not to this extent or about John Calvin. I knew about Henry VIII and his decision to break away from the catholic church but I always thought it was about his wives and didn;t know about all the dissent that had gone on for hundred of years before starting with John Wycliffe and others . It is almost to much material to take in and should be read a second time but I don;t see myself doing that soon . And also I don;t think this is a book that gets read very often at least by the Bingo going crowd LOL . Maybe later I will tackle another of Durants books , probably the Renaissance if that is available from the loan library . Meanwhile I will read some simpler books .
