FIVE STARS * * * * * This is an amazing documentary which is capably narrated by an entertaining guide throughout. I simply don't understand how anybody who is even remotely interested in Christian history could find this series "boring". I was riveted and couldn't stop watching this beautifully made series. It's not "preachy". It's factual and engrossing with myriads of detail about early Christians and the development of the religion in the first few centuries. WELL DONE! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! (And I'm not a Christian.)

Boring - my husband & I fell asleep each time we tried to get through this.
We have been to most of the places covered in the DVD. How anyone can manage to make such a riveting topic as the founding of Christianity & showing the key places involved so dry & unexciting is beyond me.

I thought it was boring. Didn't finish it.
