Here are two thousand years of history in one handy volume! Concise but not superficial, this book gives you the salient details of all the titanic events of Church history and moves on without bogging you down in minutiae. From the Church in the Roman Empire and the Middle Ages to the Catholic Reformation and the age of totalitarianism, it's all here -- along with a useful chronological table.
The history of the Catholic Church is an essential part of world history over the past two thousand years. This book written for Christians and non-Christians alike, is meant for readers who are looking for a simple but not superficial introduction, which identifies the main thread, and salient features, of that history.
Word Magazine says: "Aimed at the man in the street, it is by far the best work of its kind available in English today."
This is a terrific reference for students and for all who want to understand the events that have formed today's Church. Fully indexed.
