This History begins at the end of the Public Life of Christ and continues to the great Persecution at the beginning of the fourth century. Eusebius lived c. AD 260-339, and had manuscripts to copy from that are no longer available. This was written long before the canon of the Bible was decided. The richness of the history, the fight against error and heresies, what finally happened to the Apostles, the people and the dates, all very illuminating.

The original Christian history book by the original Christian history. Still worth reading today for a peak at early Christian life. Eusebius also records so much of history that would otherwise be lost to the sands of time. This is an excellent translation and the list of "Who's Who in Eusebius" at the end of the book is an awesome resource. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about the early Christian Church.
