Review

A relatively concise history of the Roman Empire, compared to Gibbon's Decline and Fall. some good analysis, and comparisons. Because he doesn't seem to know true Bible christianity his understanding and view of church history is definitely slanted in one particular direction. All in all a decent summary and overview of the Roman empire and its time.
