4.1 out of 5 stars with 82 reviews
Some 250 years after its first publication, Gibbon's Decline and Fall is still regarded as one of the greatest histories in Western literature. He reports on more than 1,000 years of an empire which extended from the most northern and western parts of Europe to deep into Asia and Africa and covers not only events but also the cultural and religious developments that effected change during that time. In Volume III (XXVII-XXXVI), Gibbon charts the fall of the Western empire. Starting with the
Reading Judas: The Gospel of Judas and the Shaping of Christianity
4.0 out of 5 stars with 84 reviews
Two leading, best-selling experts on the Gnostic gospels weigh in on the meaning of the controversial, newly discovered
Gospel of Judas.
When the Gospel of Judas was published by the National Geographic Society in April 2006, it received extraordinary media attention and was immediately heralded as a major biblical discovery that rocked the world of scholars and laypeople alike. Elaine Pagels and Karen King are the first to reflect on this newfound text and its ramifications for the story of
Pax Romana: War, Peace, and Conquest in the Roman World
4.4 out of 5 stars with 26 reviews
Best-selling author Adrian Goldsworthy turns his attention to the Pax Romana, the famous peace and prosperity brought by the Roman Empire at its height in the first and second centuries AD. Yet the Romans were conquerors, imperialists who took by force a vast empire stretching from the Euphrates to the Atlantic coast. Ruthless, Romans won peace not through coexistence but through dominance; millions died and were enslaved during the creation of their empire.
Pax Romana examines how the Romans
The Outline of History: Being a Plain History of Life and Mankind
By Blackstone Audio, Inc.
4.4 out of 5 stars with 87 reviews
Having coined the phrase ''the war that will end war,'' H. G. Wells was disillusioned by the World War I peace settlement. Convinced that humanity needed to awaken to the instability of the world order and remember lessons from the past, the author of science-fiction classics set out to write about history. Wells hoped to remind mankind of its common past, provide it with a basis for international patriotism, and guide it to renounce war. The work became immensely popular, earning him world

4.9 out of 5 stars with 77 reviews
In Volume IV (Chapters XXXVII-XLVI), Gibbon explores the state of the Roman provinces after the dissolution of the Western Empire, and examines the reasons for its fall not excluding its 'immoderate greatness'. He then moves to the Empire in the East and its rule under Justinian (527 565), whose formidable leadership saw the re-fortification of Constantinople and the frontiers of the Eastern Empire. However, dangerous times remain ahead as the Persians make attempts to siege Constantinople.
The Lost World of Adam and Eve: Genesis 2-3 and the Human Origins Debate
4.7 out of 5 stars with 111 reviews
For centuries, the story of Adam and Eve has resonated richly through the corridors of art, literature, and theology. But for most moderns, taking it at face value is incongruous. And even for many thinking Christians today who want to take seriously the authority of Scripture, insisting on a ''literal'' understanding of Genesis 2-3 looks painfully like a ''tear here'' strip between faith and science.
How can Christians of good faith move forward? Who were the historical Adam and Eve? What if
