This paperback text is an excellent buy, and I saved a significant amount of money by securing the book through Amazon. My Sunday School class is currently studying this book, and our group is extremely fortunate in that the book's author, James R. Adair, is a member of our class. How cool is that? It's also an advantage that my copy is pre-owned, as the previously highlighted text is proving to be quite helpful.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While I find that most of the information is historical, I also find that this author is very biased in his presentation of Christianity. For example, when he presents certain theologians he describes some of them as most influential or the most prominent. I find these kind of statements to be very biased, especially since he says he wants to present a historical documentation.
I also wonder why he doesn't include more Biblical references since he is introducing Christianity. His form of Christianity (or Christianities as he says) is very different from the one I get when reading the Bible. He has focused little on the events in the Bible and more on commentary after the fact. I am only in Ch. 6 but I have read each chapter in depth (since this is for a college level class). Honestly I don't feel like he represents the Christian faith very well.
