From Abelard to Zwingli, via a multitude of saints and sinners, Nick Page guides us through the creeds, the councils, the buildings and the background of the Christian church in an illuminating, and perhaps ever so slightly irreverent way.

Well-known as a writer, speaker, unlicensed historian and general information-monger, Nick Page combines in-depth research, historical analysis and cutting-edge guesswork to explore how on earth the Christian church has survived all that 2,000 years of heroes, villains and misfits could throw at it (mostly from the inside) to remain one of the most influential forces in the world today.

'I was predestined to read this.' John Calvin.

'I felt my heart strangely warmed. Or it could have been indigestion.' John Wesley.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Rating: 4/5 StarsFor everyone who's ever tried to engage with church history and found it to be at best worthy but stupefyingly dull, Nick Page has played a blinder. His book is funny... warm, insightful and helpful... To have wit and style to turn the story of Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria, and his chum Anthony the uber-hermit into a laugh-out-loud pantomime is a rare gift... This is a great starter text for everyone. Keep up the good work, sir. * Engage Magazine *
I have ended up reading Nick Page's A Nearly Infallible History of Christianity, which is a bit silly and very informative. * Reform Magazine *
