Balanced and unapologetic, excellent read

The book is an encyclopedia of topics related to the rise and presentation of Christianity throughout the ages. The book is a must read for any serious seeker of the history and development of Christianity as well as its influence in today’s world. Stark presents both sides of every topic with a compelling evidence based input. I am now a Rodney Stark fan.

Excellent Analysis of Christianity's Growth

The work is a well researched analysis of how and why the Jesus Movement triumphed. Very detailed. I've learned quite a bit. The only downside I've uncovered is that there should be a PDF that will show the listener the graphs and charts that is mentioned in the text.
