This book has the feel of a book that bypassed the editing process - yet it's a second edition! The flow of thought jumps around; there are random facts thrown in without any context provided as to why they might be important; and the sentence structure frequently had me re-reading to try to understand what the author intended.
I gave up reading after the first third of the book.

I found the book to be well written and very informative. I would recommend this book to anyone wishing to get more back ground information on the history of the Church.
