Nonfiction Review: 30 Events That Shaped The Church by Alton Gansky

Alton Gansky does a wonderful job of covering a lot of ground in a short space. His writing is easy to read, and he provides plenty of cultural context as he covers the "30 Events That Shaped The Church." Gansky starts with events found in Acts (which some may find slower reading) and moves on to cover everything from the various church councils to the Scopes Monkey Trial. I appreciated his inclusion of more unique events and groups. My one complaint: I felt the author was a bit partial to Catholicism. He includes events that took place after the church split, potentially giving modern Catholicism a place in the Church.

*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
