Roman Catholic Church: An Illustrated History, Hardback Book

Roman Catholic Church: An Illustrated History Hardback


The history of the Roman Catholic Church is the gateway to understanding 2,000 years of Western and at times world civilization.

Edward Normans lavishly illustrated new account, set to become a classic, begins with how Roman Catholics understand their faith, before telling the story of the multifarious ways in which their Church has shaped the lives and beliefs of Christian and non-Christians alike.

Every Roman Catholic should read this book; and everyone with the least interest in what shaped our world today will learn from it.
