The Old-Timey Bishop

I know you are waiting for your daily dose of CHRISTIANITY: THE FIRST THREE THOUSAND YEARS by Diarmaid MacCulloch, whose name I can now spell without looking, just like David Strathairn's. No tidbits yet today. It's all getting so complicated and tough to distill into tidbits. In fact, MacCulloch even apologizes for the lack of tidbits, in a way, warning that as things get sticky, "Readers of this book may become bewildered, bored or irritated by my extended discussions of the theological niceties..." Not me! MacCulloch calls one old-timey bishop "energetically unpleasant." Is that a tidbit?
