5.0 out of 5 stars History the way it should be written., September 23, 1999
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Founding of Christendom (A History of Christendom, Vol. 1) (Hardcover)
Warren Carroll is a master at his craft. He writes history the way it should be written. His histories are true-to-life: full of heroes and villains engaged in the great struggle of good against evil. You'll find no economic or material determinism here. Carroll states at the outset that he is presenting an unabashedly Catholic history of Christendom. But, rest assured, these histories are no whitewash. The Catholic Church is presented with all its warts along with all of its glories. I have just finished the fist two volumes of this series and look forward to starting the third (and buying the yet-to-be-published volumes). The only way these volumes could have been improved would have been with the addition of maps helping to set the stage where the history is played out. Some of the ancient place names are obscure and many modern place names do not correspond exactly with similar ancient ones.
