In the Context of Eternity was described by the editorial director of a leading London publishing house as 'a lively and readable one-volume history of Christianity, challenging the view that ancient history came to an end in the fifth century and that nothing of significance then happened until the Renaissance. It explains how an extraordinary intermingling of the Roman Empire, Christianity and Barbarism produced the most dynamic society the world has ever known, and how the modern world of the scientific revolution, capitalism and liberal democracy emerged from the interaction of Christianity and Barbarism on the ruins of Rome.'
In the Context of Eternity: A Short History of the Christian Church Paperback edition by David John Arnold
