The story of church and state
The story of the relationship between Christianity and the state is one of intriguing characters, huge cultural and social changes, and massive reversals of fortune.
From the early believers through Contantine, the fall of the Roman empire, medieval popes and princes, reformers, and revolutions, theologian Graham Tomlin provides a short but packed summary of 2000 years of turbulent history.
Sometimes encouraging, sometimes disturbing, always challenging, this is an essential primer for those who recognise the truth in the saying that "those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it".
