"There are two ways of writing a short book on a vast subject. One is the potted survey, where everyone appears in the index but very little is added about them in the text. The other is a more impressionistic approach. It is the way of a photographer, choosing certain significant images to suggest a broader scene. And it is the way best suited to the text of an illustrated book, highlighting certain moments at the price of others." - Preface from The Christians
