A very good basic introduction to the history of Christianity that covers the major events, trends and personalities in a way that serves as a good bridge to further more detailed reading. This was originally written to accompany a 13 part TV series in 1977 (though it has been updated a little since) and the chapters are therefore all of nearly identical length and readability. The author is balanced in his assessments and has no axe to grind. An excellent book.
