- Very Useful Study for Protestants by Macy on 10/10/2014
An easily understood introduction to Christian History, which I suggest will fulfill the needs of your individual or Protestant group study. I noted a few points that do not agree with Catholic doctrine, but Jones did a good job avoiding the trouble spots. The included DVD with PDF files for printable leader guide and promotional materials was thorough and easily adaptable for many uses.
Jones' knowledge is extensive, easy to follow. Terms clearly indicated on screen when new topics. Useful info about the transition from oral tradition to written word.
Negatives/Distractions: (for which I will deduct one star from total of five stars)
1) Lecture-type gets tiresome but he does a good job of presentation without distractions, and humorous visuals help.
2) I was concerned that Dr. Jones skips the early chapters in Acts and begins with Acts 28 and Paul. What about the earlier church - Stephen, Peter and James?
