An excellent overview of the Christian history in the UK and Ireland from apostolic times to the present. While you won't find any revisionist history here, you will find a thorough explanation of events that never fails to include all the countries in the British Isles.
Marrow writes well and handles this huge topic in such a way that the reader need fells either rushed or as if facts are left out. I loved that she sees topics such as church architecture, monasticism, and music as important parts of the story because these things are often neglected.
While I realize that a book of this kind cannot be comprehensive, i do disagree with some of her explanations of Catholic people and events. But this is a minor fault in an outstanding book.
