Notes:

Comprehensive, with some interesting and fairly nuanced sections on (for example) Christianity in Africa and Christianity and Islam, but perhaps rather too uncritical for many sceptics (and with no reference to Christianity's role in the witch hunts, which would be expecting too much I guess).
