Good book for someone like me. I was interested in how the split between the various Christian religions happened and why. There seem to be many different Christian denominations.
As an added bonus, I learned more about various non Christian religions in our world. I considered this to be valuable information for living in our world today.
I kept renewing it because it was so good. Might borrow it again one day.
