Onverting the early English pagans to Christanity The story continues to the end of reign of King Alfred the Great. Now What by Michael Kramer is an intense compilation of historic facts wrapped into a fictionalized story The depth of knowledge Kramer exhibits is fascinating and truly represents a great deal of well thought out research We begin with the early years of the Germanic tribes and finish with the earlier English kings The telling of the story is through a ghost of Horsa a Kimbern war lord and through this mediumpersona goes into great detail about the expanding horizons and history of the Engels Saxons and others including the Vikings Sometimes it's hard to remember this is a fictionalized story because the facts presented are so daunting and in depth You can tell the author has a passion for his subject matter Not a book to be read in one sitting this book is to be picked up and absorbed slowly in order to fully glean the knowledge contained within Highly recommend
