Gibb’s Christians…

January 3, 2011 at 1:56 am (Reviews) (, , , , )

I promised myself I would write more complete reviews this year, keep my blog updated and all that, but after reading Edward Gibb’s Christians and the Fall of Rome I just don’t have a lot to say.  I got tired reading it.  Despite its short hundred pages I found it difficult to focus on the topic.  Gibb spent a lot of the essay comparing Christianity to various mythologies and its a good thing to read and be familiar with differing viewpoints, but I found his writing style tiring and without passion.  So I just didn’t care.  I will have to re-read it with Ayla when we study the history of Christianity as well as when we cover the Greek and Roman Empire, but I’ll need a good solid pot of coffee in my system to do so.  I suppose that’s my review…
