One of the best introductions to the Trinity. It starts with the Old Testament ideas and traces the development up to the 21st century. Wonderful. Wonderful. Wonderful. I don't think it's been translated.

This book is an exercise in vocabulary and patience, but somewhere around page 400 you begin to see things in a way you never thought possible. A world opens up you didn't see before. In other words, it's good fantasy.

My favorite book. I put the last date read, but the best books are the ones you (can) go back to again and again. It's not the most exciting read out there, but it powerfully displays themes of love, selfishness, humility, and, and pain. Besides his ...more

The best fantasy book written since LoTR (well, technically since the Similarillion). From the point of view of a stuffy Victorian scholar, the history of England is told as if magic were just a daily thing; even the footnotes keep the story going. A ...more

Terrible writing, terrible history, and anti-Catholic. I know it's not a history and people are free to write pretty much whatever you want, but with that footnote at the beginning and the 3rd grade sentences, you actually get dummer as you read it. ...more
