Lazarus does not come forth

I've just learned that the Christian History Project is being wound up, with the series of books outlining the history of Christianity being unfinished.

It was the latest venture of my old boss, Ted Byfield. I was able to find out what had happened due to playing a miniscule role in the enterprise. (I had done a very small amount of research work for the book that was being done now.)

They are attributing the end of the project to a sin: theft. Their computer server was stolen last December. The ensuing costs and business hiatus has made the project financially unsound.

It's a shame, as The Christians could have been a valuable addition to church scholarship.
