    "I Was Hoping For A Book"

    This is not a book, but a collection of what appears to be magazine articles on christian history. I was hoping for a book or at least a more chronological history of the bible explaining how the books of the bible came together to form the "canon" or inspired scripture. Instead, this audio book starts in the 1500's with the translation of the King James Bible and then reverts back to 100-200 AD in subsequent articles. It then jumps around a bit more from article to article, but not in a smooth chronological format. However, I did enjoy learning about John Wycliffe and William Tyndale and the amazing role they played in church history and the English bible translation. Their lives are fascinating and I would really like to read a biography on each them.

    "Enjoyed the selection - Would like more"
    What made the experience of listening to Christian History Issue #43 the most enjoyable?

    Good information and the reader was did a good job on the material. Only thing I would prefer is not to have the advertisements read. One they were way out of date and they made the reading a little disjointed.


    What about Michael Kramer’s performance did you like?

    Pretty easy to listen to and to follow.
