Sintesi dell'editore

Christianity arose within the social and spiritual dislocation of the Roman Empire. Jesus, perceived by authorities as a threat to public stability, was executed in about 30 CE; his crucifixion and belief in his resurrection became a defining symbol for world-wide Christian religion.

The fall of Rome led to a divided Roman Empire and eventually a divided church. Though Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches share virtually the same canon of scriptures, they have diverged through the centuries as each embraced different ideas about worship, ethics, and relations to politics and culture.

The Religion, Scriptures, and Spirituality series describes the beliefs, religious practices, and the spiritual and moral commitments of the world's great religious traditions. It also describes a religion's way of understanding scripture, identifies its outstanding thinkers, and discusses its attitude and relationship to society.

More on Catholicism than Orthodoxy

It's more of a overview on Christianity itself than on Catholicism and Orthodoxy. I was hoping for more info on the history of the two than just an overview

Just Terrible

I was hoping to really like this book, however I was greatly disappointed, and upset. First of all there are more than a few factual errors in it. Security the narration, if you can call it that, was so over the top and annoyingly dramatic it was difficult to listen to.

Don't bother

Having multiple voices is helpful to understand who is speaking. But the author used material which neither the Catholic or Orthodox churches would agree. Therefore, look elsewhere for reliable information.

Drama? Seriously?

I could not listen. This is a serious subject turned into a sentimental dramatic reading. Not my thing.
