    "A little stiff, but surprisingly comprehensive"

    Both the writing and the narration are a little stiff, but it's a surprisingly comprehensive history given its length. Marty's approach is partly chronological and partly geographical: for example, the book moves from "The First Asian Episode" to "The First African Episode" and then "The First European Episode." The first covers the birth of the church and the early years in Syria, Palestine, and Asian Minor (with some coverage of Christianity's extent further east); the second describes the role played by the theologians of Alexandria, Carthage, and other cities along the North African coast; the third moves to Rome, Constantinople, and the rise of "Christendom." Later episodes fill in the rest of the story. It covers the ground, it's short and easy to follow, and it is truly global as advertised. On the whole a very good introduction to the subject.
