If you ever wondered what is the source of many details about the New Testament era that aren't found in the Bible, this history may be it. Eusebius tells us what happened to the disciples of Jesus in later life, how the early Christians were persecuted, and much more. Whether you are Catholic, Orthodox, or Protestant (or not even a believer at all) if you are at all interested in the history of the Early Church, this book is a must-read.

The full title of this work is "A Select Library of the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers of the Christian Church".  This collection contains the full 14 volume set of that work.  Also included, Eusebius Pamphilus Life of Constantine, and Oration in Praise of Constantine.

Eusebius' "History of the Church" is rightly known as "THE History of the Church." There is no other of the same breadth and depth as Eusebius'. This volume is an excellent synthesis of the works of all significant early Christian and secular historians and eyewitness accounts of the events forming the early Church. Eusebius's narrative is linear, tracking the growth of the Church from Pentecost, A.D. 32 through stages of vicious persecution until the Emperor Constantine's sanctioning of Christianity as The Roman Empire's official religion. Eusebius' prose is terse yet wonderfully erudite with an obvious bias towards the early Church--baptized in blood so that the Church today might flourish.
Eusebius tells us how the Church and the Canon of Scripture came to be. Every major Church figure, controversy, and event of significance is recorded in accurate detail. Every heresy that threatened the Church's existence is reported thoroughly, yet concisely. Eusebius was not an eyewitness to many of the events himself and therefore draws upon all available secondary sources during his time, including Josephus; Philo; Clement; and documents that later formed the Canon of Scripture. This synthesis of the ancient sources in itself is extremely valuable--Eusebius makes sense of all of Josephus' and Philo's voluminous works and puts it all together clearly for his readers.
Eusebius writes about people, and there are many in this account. From the 12 Disciples and Paul to the Church bishops to all those branded as heretics. Eusebius pays special attention to the martyrs: e.g., James, killed by Herod; Polycarp, whose death Eusebius presents a riveting account of. Eusebius also writes of those who abandoned the faith at swordpoint so that later Christians may take heed.

Eusebius of Caesarea, also called Eusebius Pamphili, (flourished 4th century, Caesarea Palestinae, Palestine), bishop, exegete, polemicist, and historian whose account of the first centuries of Christianity, in his Ecclesiastical History, is a landmark in Christian historiography.

Eusebius was baptized and ordained at Caesarea, where he was taught by the learned presbyter Pamphilus, to whom he was bound by ties of respect and affection and from whom he derived the name “Eusebius Pamphili” (the son or servant of Pamphilus). Pamphilus came to be persecuted by the Romans for his beliefs and died in martyrdom in 310. After the death of Pamphilus, Eusebius withdrew to Tyre and later, while the Diocletian persecution was still raging, went to Egypt, where he seems to have been imprisoned but soon released.
