Rise And Fall of The Roman Empire, Free eBook from Chuck Thompson

The Rise and Fall of The Roman Empire.  If we fail to know and understand our history, we are doomed to repeat it.  This is a good starting place for getting a better idea as to how Rome came into power, how they stayed there and how they eventually fell.  Christianity was being introduced while Rome was falling apart and the Christians very quickly blamed the Pagans and their gods for Rome's destruction.  The Pagans of course denied such and continued on to the ruin of Rome from it's once great stature.

  We don't make this stuff up, it's in the book.  Now this is a much older text and at the time when these books were being printed, an f type character was used instead of an S character.  Printing presses were set by hand.  The type was individual letters set up on a tray before being laid down to produce the written words.  S was not in high supply in early type.  So you have to get yourself accustomed to the F used as an S throughout the book.

  Free copies can be downloaded from our Slideshare site.
