An exhaustive look at the history of the Catholic religion Written by two priests who are identical twins and members of the Congregation of the Mary Immaculate Queen, Tumultuous Times: Twenty General Councils of the Catholic Church & Vatican II and Its Aftermath is an exhaustive look at the history of the Catholic religion. The first half extensively describes the history of the "Twenty General Councils of the Catholic Church" from 325-1870 AD and their role in defining and clarifying Catholic doctrine. The second half scrutinizes "Vatican II and Its Aftermath" (1962-1965), including the New Mass and Sacraments. Emphasizing the importance of constancy in church doctrine despite pressure from outside and constantly changing environments, Tumultuous Times is a resource that reflects the abiding faith of its authors, as well as their passionate conviction that that there can only be one true church. A powerfully written blend of extensive research and deeply held belief in the value of staying true to faith and tradition.

The author's passion for the subject is evident throughout the text, and this two-piece tome is quite an accomplishment. The author is a tireless researcher, and the thoroughness of this endeavor is impressive. Summarizing the history of the general councils of the Catholic Church is a huge undertaking, and this author should feel very proud for having compiled this text. It's enormously informative and certainly interesting for the devout Catholic reader interested in his/her religion's history. - 2005 Writer's Digest International Book Awards
