really liked it
Read in May, 2006

A moving and brilliant account, exceedingly well-written, of the fall of the great city of Greek Rome, perhaps the greatest disaster for Christianity since the Crucifixion. Alas, this episode has not yet been redeemed by a resurrection -- not yet.

Western Christians do not know this history as they should: this slim volume is a good place to start.
