Combining the accuracy and readability of the first edition of this highly acclaimed text, Dowley has enhanced the second edition with new contributions from Pheme Perkins on "The Thought-World of Early Christianity" and Richard Burridge on "Jesus and the Gospels" as well as updated and revised contributions from Ward Gasque, Richard Pierard, John H. Y. Briggs, and more. With many new photographs, illustrations, maps, charts, and timelines, the inviting new full-color format tells the dramatic, intriguing, and often surprising story of Christians in their 2000-year journey to the present day.

Quality of content in the book is acceptable. Not terrifically in depth but given its scope it is understandable. The use of several authors adds different approaches and insights which are enjoyable. Unfortunately the ebook version (which I purchased) doesn't seem to be formatted the best. When "in depth" articles are placed to one side of the text, they can only be viewed if the reader zooms all the view way out and are thus difficult to read on even a Nook device.
