Also, the author tends to think in terms of The Church, not individual churches, so the Coptic Church comes off as just one faction among many which were struggling with each other in a pursuit of common Truth until the (seemingly) pre-destined emergence of The Church, i.e. the church in Rome. For me this took away from the individual character of the Coptic church. I'm interested in the numerous manifestations of Christianity at its outset, not in hurrying along to dismiss them as incidental to the The Church as it eventually evolved.
The Kamil book's better with the history, but it's weak on illustrations, i.e., very few photos and they're in black and white. Both books together are better than either one separately.
