Thomas Nelson sent me 5 Cities that Ruled the World to review at my request and I have to say it has been a great read. Author Douglas Wilson has done an amazing job of reviewing the historical impacts of five cities: Jerusalem, Athens, Rome, London and New York.
Walking the reader through the significance of the past, Wilson draws the reader's attention to history's fingers playing in the present. As a history buff, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and still learned many interesting facts and cultural pieces of knowledge. Written from a Christian perspective, it is a book I intend to keep in our home library for years to come.
As stated, Thomas Nelson Publishers sent me this book for free and I did not receive any monetary compensation for it's review nor did its "freeness" affect my review.
