The Early Church

by blue42 (WorldCat user published 2009-10-31) Excellent Permalink

If you want a really good understanding of the early Christian church, this is a realy good source. It takes you through the steps of what the church went through to get to where it is at today. I recommend this book to everyone who is curious about Christian history. I give it 2 thumbs up!!
