This book took me quite some time to get through. It is quite a heavy, meaty book full of information. I really enjoying reading about religion – various religions, not just my own. It does provide the reader with some insight as to the difficulties, struggles, etc. of the early church. I often had to re-read what I had already read so that I could grasp the information. I found myself thinking “I should really take notes while reading this book” and then did just that. I found that doing so helped me grasp more of the information provided. I also think that this book would do well as at a college or university type setting. It was very academic in it’s nature. The author did extensive research and it is obvious in the writing and in the notes.
