Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
a very clear and easy to read account of just about any document, etc. and person who influenced modern Christian beliefs from the first 500 yrs. following Christ. And it moves right along; does not get bogged down in tiny details; Papandrea connects one person's influence on another as he goes along; explains easily and succinctly all the connections..... makes it enjoyable to read, as well as informative.

Format: Paperback
I was excited to find this book because it is like reading our family history. Ive always wanted to learn more about our church beginnings especially because I truly believe it was established by our Lord and has the Holy Spirit guiding us so in a way it is like hearing from Him. Thank you for putting it all together for me!
