HISTORY OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
FROM THE APOSTOLIC AGE TO THE THIRD MILLENNIUM. The Catholic Church is the longest-enduring institution in the world. Beginning with the first Christians and continuing in our present day, the Church has been planted in every nation on earth. Its history is long, complicated, and fascinating, and in this book it is expertly and ably told by historian James Hitchcock. He brings before us 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. Hardcover. 580 pages.
