Rating: 4/5 StarsFor everyone who's ever tried to engage with church history and found it to be at best worthy but stupefyingly dull, Nick Page has played a blinder. His book is funny... warm, insightful and helpful... To have wit and style to turn the story of Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria, and his chum Anthony the uber-hermit into a laugh-out-loud pantomime is a rare gift... This is a great starter text for everyone. Keep up the good work, sir.
I have ended up reading Nick Page's A Nearly Infallible History of Christianity, which is a bit silly and very informative.
