The parts that actually focused on Emma were illuminating, and the historical research seemed honest, both in its conclusions and the transparency of its bias (something I wish more church history texts would do). However, major parts of this book were simple recapitulations of general church history, and while I understand the need to provide context to Emma's life, some of the connections were strained, to say the least.
