A History of Christianity

You are now witness to my inner geekdom. With an affinity for documentaries and a pretty healthy appetite for intriguing information about the church, I didn't want to pass up the chance to review the first DVD in this set.

And I've already created a little clone geek. Zane watched it with me and we both enjoyed it!

A History of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years, a new DVD series, explores what it really means to be a Christian.

Presented by David MacCulloch, a leading historian and Professor of History of the Church and Fellow at St. Cross College, Oxford.

"Religious belief can transform us for good or ill. It has brought humans to acts of criminal folly as well as to the highest achievements of goodness and creativity. I tell the story of both extremes," say MacCulloch.

As a homeschooler, doing my best to make sure my son has a well-rounded Christian education, this series is my cup of tea. I would like to add the rest of the collection to my library and use it as curriculum.

Rather than tell you everything on the DVD, let me say that the first hour-long program was filled with information I didn't know. I expect the same from the other five.
