This is an auction for THE CHRISTIANS by Bamber Gascoigne.

"Whether he was God, or man, or myth, one thing is certain about Jesus Christ: no one has had a greater influence on human history. And no single strand traces such an intriguing pattern through the past 2000 years, involves so many cultures, brings in such varied art and architecture, or explains so much that is familiar and half-familiar as the story of the Christians. The magnificent book tells their story, and like the television series with which it is linked, follows the history of the developing religion through individual men and women who shaped it. It is a story of colossal undertakings and spectacular successes as well as ferocious intolerance, greed and bloodshed - of politics and power side by side with the most intimate personal experience of God. This book is exquisitely illustrated with over 200 photographs taken by Christina Gascoigne, many of them in colour. With complete objectivity as to the claims of theology or sect, Bamber Gascoigne traces a clear path through the most complicated story by concentrating on moments of significant detail. Combining the immediacy of television with the more sustained narrative of the written word, his text brilliantly conjures into life the motive, the passions, the fears and achievements of the Christians." review:

"FIVE STARS!!! Bamber Gascoigne's irreverent study of the Christians never fails to entertain while at the same time being informative as well as accurate."
