Eusebius' "History of the Church"

How concise is it from from an Orthodox pov? Or does it lean more towards Roman history of the Church, though at the time it was written there was only one Church.

It is well worth reading; but don't expect it to have always the spiritual tone of some of the others you have mentioned: it is, while piously intended (in support of St Constnatine), it is nonetheless an historical survey and overview - so not explicitly a reflective text. But it offers some wonderful, beautiful, moving insights into the life and spirituality of the early Church.

I'm teaching this text for the second time to my middle school Church History class. It's a very well written primary source, fairly accessible. The new edition by Kegel with the commentary by Paul Maier is helpful, but his Protestant presuppositions penetrate ponderously throughout.
