really liked it
Read in December, 2011

Fascinating, though a bit difficult to follow chronologically. The detailed accounts of appalling, horrific torture of early Christians was too sickening to read at times. It amazes me that Christianity survived those early years despite every effort to demolish it. There were interesting explanations for some differing histories in the Bible, clear adherance to apostolic succession and tradition, the consistent denial of heresies and schisms. It's an enlightening glimpse into the very early years of the Catholic Church.
