    For 2,000 years the Catholic Church has continued the mission of Christ and spread his gospel throughout the world. This concise one-volume history draws on the massive research of the past half-century to present a lucid account of its development from the Pentecost to the present. Each chapter strikes a balance between the institutional and the religious dimensions of the Church: bishops and popes, canon law, charity, crusades, devotions, heresies, the laity, the liturgy, prayer and sacrament.
