rating: 4 of 5 stars
I love any book where Louis XIV and Billy Graham share equal page time.
Gonzalez' second volume is again, an excellent survey of the history of (mostly) the Western church, which works hard to attend to not only the big names and movements, but heeds marginalized voices, cultures and many under-told legacies.
Because its now 20 years old, the book only takes you to the beginning of the cultural shifts taking place in the 1980's, but this is still an outstanding resource for bridging the gap to our current ecclesial structures, patterns and methods, not to mention theological biases and paradigms.
I love Justo!
