Video Review – Diarmaid MacCulloch’s A History of Christianity

A History of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years
Presented by Diarmaid MacCulloch

Video 1 of this series was provided to me, for review, by The B&B Media group.

My Review
What I liked
  • I was a little disappointed when he said he wouldn’t be addressing Jesus, but I was glad about it as the video progressed. This video is a history of the Christian church as an organization.
  • It was fascinating! I got sucked right in, as I am prone to do with all historical fact shows. It’s weird to me how things can seem so boring by description, but can’t seem to turn it off once I start…
  • Totally agree with his observation about how Western Christianity might do well to take a lesson from the Church of the East, and learn how to LISTEN.
What I didn’t like
  • At first it was a little distracting because all I could think was that he sounded like Stewie from Family Guy, but that faded after 10 minutes or so.
