History of the Catholic Church
Scholar James Hitchcock packs 2,000 years of history into 584 fact-filled pages . . .
The Catholic Church is the longest-enduring institution in the world. From the first Christians to the present day, the Church has been planted in every nation on earth. The Church’s history is long, complicated, and fascinating.
Hitchcock expertly and ably brings the reader the many characters — some noble, some notorious — who have left an indelible mark on the Church, while never losing sight of the saints, who have given living testimony to the salvific power of Christ in every age. This ambitious work is a valuable addition to any home library.
