I enjoyed the broad overview

I liked that there were a few main events covered from Bible times and then the events quickly moved on to how Christianity developed throughout the ages. Great overview that includes many different denominations and how they came about. Several times there were explanations for events or processes that might not be easily understood.

Narrator style seemed a bit intense, but was easy to understand and listen to.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Tilted toward Roman Catholic history; a bit hasty

I liked this alright, subject to its being heavily weighted to Roman Catholic history and, let's face it, the sheer impossibility of telling this vast story in such little time. I found the picks interesting, the bulk being of councils of bishops hashing out matters of doctrine, but they were (mostly) signal moments any scholar in this subject should know of.

Very Good Listen

Very good coverage of Christian history. Have listened to it more than once. Narration is very clear. Duration could easily have been extended as there is a lot to cover in Christian history. But very good overview, nevertheless.
