If you know world/Church history of the period covered by this book, you will recognize some real people, and will also be able to better appreciate the "backstory".  I just wish the book's beginning was a year or two earlier.  Ah, well.  One of my favorites, I'm buying the ebook to replace my ancient tattered paperback!
