    A must check out book about the eairly church...

    I is a good source of the early church written by Eusebius. He lived in one of the early eras of the church...I use this book to complement a study course I give at my local parish. Many of those whom I had let thumb through it had found it a help as well. They will be ordering this book. Eusebius the church history is used from my understanding by the Cathoilc Church and many other christen seminaries in their courses on those periods of the church. Mainer did a very good job of translating and writting this book.
