The Council of Nicea was not clerics in a dark and ornate hall. It was brawls in churchyards; it was emperors and governors fighting to save the empire; it was political intrigue as the governments of church and state blended into a volatile stew. It was the way a fringe group of peace-loving communal worshipers of a crucified Palestinian prophet conquered the Roman Empire.

interesting, well researched, relevant
It's not really that kind of book. But I am really interested in the early church fathers who are depicted in it like Justin Martyr, Tertullian, and Irenaeus.
He has a very calming, reassuring voice. It's easy to listen to him read on this topic.
I was shocked at some of the depictions of so-called Christians. And I definitely shook my head in amazement at the childishness of these bishops.
I wish someone would make a TV show with these characters and stories. It was such an interesting story.
