[There is a list of all the images used in this book at the end of this review. The plates are presented as three separate images, one large for each of the volumes, a small image for the front and the remainder for the back of the page.] The illustrations are more clear and concise than those found in most books published today, they are crisp and sharp, while being true to the period in which the images were created. The text is clear and concise and the level of research behind each entry is outstanding, with the Greek and Latin being used with ease. It is a comprehensive book and it makes for a very good and interesting read. They have the look of a library book and are very comfortable to read. The Vermes’s are not scholars. That’s their job. What they do is tell a story, a narrative of the early Christian Church, by using documents and artefacts. Sometimes called the “people’s history of the Church” or the “popular history of the Church”, it is a popular historical interpretation of the early Church. It emphasises the events, people and issues that shaped early Christianity, and the main texts. It is aimed at a broad audience and is, therefore, accessible to the average reader, including pastors, teachers, Christian youth and students.
