excellent read of the actual texts throughout church history. the use of original documents ensure you dont read edited material that have be redacted.

I have waded through several anthologies of classic Christian writing, and most of them are very good. (Hint: In this case, the reputation of the editor(s) is a good clue to whether the collection is worth its salt. There is a large collection by Alistair McGrath which uses a different approach, but is also very good.)

This volume, unlike McGrath's collection, is more about source documents on the life and times of Christians up to the dawn of the Renaissance. Another difference is that the selections in this book tend to be a bit longer, and from fewer sources. This is all to the good for a class on the history of Christianity.

I would NOT recommend this book for casual reading, or even as a source book for writing papers. In the former case, it is because the book does not provide the string which connects all the readings. This connection would typically be done by an instructor's lectures. In the latter case, the selections do not include notes on the text which would be present in abundance if one found the volumes in which the entire works were edited and studied.

But, if you happen to get this book in a class, and you have an interest in Christian history, I would not be too quick to sell it off, as it may provide tastes of things you may study in other classes, just enough to know if you wish to look at works by Ambrose of Milan.

I was assigned Readings in World Christian History as textbook for a class at the Perkins School of Theology. The book is a compilation of historical documents, preceded by short introductions that place the documents in context and tell why they are important.

If you are reading this, you are probably interested in church history. If you really want to get into the subject, you will need this book or another one like it.

This is an outstanding text that covers a lot of territory in church history. I found all of the readings to be very helpful in my understanding the viewpoints of the cloud of witnesses that wrote about and for the church.
