New Short History of the Catholic Church
Available in Stock
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.
