A beautifully written highly accessible and concise church history from a brilliant Eastern Orthodox theologian and philosopher THE STORY OF CHRISTIANITY is brilliant on many levels Hart s prose is fast paced and readable but he does not neglect sprinkling gifts of phrase throughout the book Those looking for a church history text that gives attention to the East as well as to the church in Africa and Asia will find this book satisfying This book is concise It covers church history in 300 pages not in 3000 This book is not protestant You won t find an apologetic for sola scriptura the formation of the canon or for the reformation though I don t think Hart treats any of those subjects unfairly There were a handful of paragraphs in this book that protestants will disagree with and may object to but as a protestant I found this highly helpful incredibly insightful considering its brevity and immensely enjoyableEDIT It turns out that Mr Hart has effectively come out not only as a universalist but as a marcionite calling Yahweh evil and a storm god among other things This does not impact my review of this book but as always one should not read this review as an endorsement of David Bentley Hart or anything else he has written For David Bentley Hart s marcionite comments see here

What I appreciate most about Hart s history is his attention given to the non western church For example I did not know the long history of the Ethiopian church Also in my Christian education the years 400 to 1000 AD were often often glanced over as if the Byzantine empire and Constantinople weren t important and Rome was the pinnacle city not to mention the theme that Augustine and Auinas were the only great thinkers in the church s first 1300 yearsHis corrective histories were informative as well for example his reorientation of the modern mythos surrounding Galileo s trialHart also ends with a hopeful tone for Christians as the future of Christianity likely rests in the South and East
