Quite a bit of this book was information that I knew in part, but this was a good breakdown and analysis of the social environment and nature of Christianity.

A bit/lot dry in points, but it engaged my brain in a way it hasn't been in quite a long time. Not really laid out well for reference though which is a pitty.

I think it may be worse off for its translation as the english was rather thick with $10 words when $5 would suffice.
