As a one-volume history of Christianity, this book can't go into great depth, but it offers a solid introduction to non-Christians and casual Christians who wish to know more about the faith. The author pays particular attention to the global reach of the religion, noting how its roots are in Asia and Africa, and it only later spread to Europe. The book is clearly written. Nelson Runger is an excellent choice as narrator. With his mellow, easy-on-the-ears voice, passages just glide along. He doesn't rush the pace, and he pauses effectively after particularly intense passages or difficult concepts, in the style of a good teacher letting students catch up.
