I got the change to hear Dr. Brock present on this book, and it is another superb work from a superb scholar. If you don't want to be challenged and learn new things, this is not the book for you. If you want to learn a lot about the first thousand years of Christianity, and possibly be moved to begin to regain some of what has been mostly lost to history, this is an excellent book. What emerges from their study of the artwork of the ancient church in particular is a view of salvation that is deeply meaningful and more compelling than what I hear most of the time from other Christians.
