    A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand Years review Ô 103 A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand Years‘What religion am I’ asks Homer Simpson in one episode of his family's eponymous cartoon ‘I'm the one with all the well meaning rules that don't work out in real lifeuhChristianity’ One of the many pleasures in Diarmaid MacCulloch's amazingly comprehensive book is getting a handle on what historical basis there is for the rules and doctrines of this prolific and mercurial religion which nowadays seems characterized by extreme reactions of either perfect secular indifference or increasingly literalist devotionThere are excellent books available for all kinds of angles on th

    A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand Years review Ô 103 A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand YearsThis book should have been called Christianity A Speculative History from a Somewhat Antagonistic Viewpoint I only read the first 150 pages plenty far enough to understand how MacCulloch feels about Christianity Most of the book is by nature extrapolation based on a very fragmented set of documents and conflicting histories but MacCulloch is always overanxious to undermine Christianity by taking huge leaps of speculation and is never at least that I saw in the first 150 pages willing to remain neutral or actually go the other directionI found his writing style to be good and the idea for the book is fantastic I'm fully prepared to deal with problems in history and with the faults of Christians throughout history but

    A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand Years review Ô 103 A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand YearsThis is a monumental piece of work by an erudite scholar It covers the whole range of Christian history from its roots in Judaism to modern day As a starting point it delves into the Old Testament contrasting it's God jehovah a jealous and vengeful God with the loving God that sacrifices his son in the New TestamentIt shows the rise of Christianity from an obscure Jewish sect through the rebranding by St Paul and on to an established state religion I

    A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand Years review Ô 103 A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand YearsThis is a very good history It depresses me a bit because it is written in the cynical anti establishment style which is typical of the educated elite today but it is valuable for its uality and the insight which it offers regarding the multitude of different takes on Christianity most of them sincere and justified none of them isolated from political expediency which were the fruit of the early Church Its uite humbling for those who maintain 'the correct doctrines' and at the same time gives one the justification for preferring the views that one holds Oddly enough the last word in a huge tome seems to tell that it is of all things the doctr

    A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand Years review Ô 103 A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand YearsMacCulloch makes reading exhaustive history exhilarating rather than exhausting and although everyone will have a favourite nit to pick mine being the dubious treatment of Hegel and the absence of anything about Erigena only the most die hard partisan could claim that this is anything other than brilliant Ignore anyone who tells you it's anti insert your own sect here and read it Take your time And I'm sure you'll be mining the 'recommended reading' section at the back of the book before you've finished chapter 7 at the latest What I want to know is how MacCulloch manages to tell a linear story in a way that doesn't pervert the thematic content or maybe he's written a thematically arranged book which doesn't pervert the

    A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand Years review Ô 103 A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand YearsI'll begin my review this way there are a few reviewers who did not like this book due to the secular but by no means anti Christian perspective most educated readers would expect from a serious church historian Naturally many of these reviewers associate MacCulloch with the atheistic academic left which I'm sure would come as a surprise to the author given his background in the Church of England If Christian apologetics masked as church history is what you are looking for then I have a few titles for you but they are tear your eyeballs out badSuffice it to say I have been looking for a book like this one for a long time and I doubt a better book on church history will be written anytime soon The book is information dense and rather dry but in all fairness to MacCulloch a litany of jokes may have added a pound or two to this al

    A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand Years review Ô 103 A History of Christianity The First Three Thousand YearsThis book may be too ambitious It claims to cover three thousand years of global history but it does so sketchily most of its focus being on first the Middle East and second Europe and America The Britishness of the author is clear as is the fact that he him
