Excellent presentation of the ups and downs of the Catholic Church with a focus on the critical moments. ( )
  jerry-book | Jan 26, 2016 |
An excellent history up to the end of the Second Vatican Council in 1965 and its aftermath (first 75% of the book). Thereafter it goes downhill (final 25%). Readers should know that this book was first published in 1977. New editions with added material were released in 1979, 1990, 2004, and 2005. Unfortunately, the new material was simply tacked on to the old with apparently no effort to update the language, verb tenses, etc. in the older text to reflect the fact that time had passed between the additions/editions. Should have ended so much better. ( )

To my dear mother and father
First words
The Catholic Church has always claimed Jesus of Nazareth as its founder, and nearly everyone is familiar with the basic facts about this dynamic Jewish preacher and healer who was born around the turn of the century A.D. (proabably between 6 B.C. and A.D. 6) and was crucified by the Romans between A.D. 28 and 30.
