  1. A one volume history of the Catholic Church is quite an undertaking and to do it in a bit over 530 pages is not a simple task Writing only 500 pages on any century of the Church would be a difficult task Creating a one volume history imposes many expected limitations, but if done well can provide a very valuable service There are several one volume histories of this type, although I have mainly read either the multi volume sets such as The History of Christendom by the late Warren H Carroll or h [...]


  2. September 2, 2013A Review by Anthony T Riggio of James Hitchcock s History of the Catholic Church From the Apostolic Age to the Third Millennium.I am neither a philosopher nor a theologian but am a Catholic interested in knowing about the origins of my own Faith I do love history and the evolvement in the Catholic Church is a lesson in history that takes all of us through the development of Western Civilization As a history major in college and the product of a parochial school education, I hav [...]


  3. A good summary of Catholic history Reads like an encyclopedia while having enough narrative style to keep the interest of the reader throughout Can be used for reference or read straight from start to finish.The author is a conservative Catholic For that genre the treatment is fair with only a few foundational omissions Apologetic in tone in addition to covering the breadth of material in a short volume, Hitchcock has done an admirable job of mass marketing Catholic history for the laymen in the [...]


  4. 2000 years is a lot to cram into one volume, however James Hitchcock managed to do just that His book provides a thorough yet concise summary of Catholicism He doesn t pull any punches when he talks about the Schism with the Eastern Orthodox churches or the reasons for the Reformation Yet he doesn t slam the church and ends his book being optimistic about the future of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic faith.A good first read for anyone who wants to get a good summary of our church s history [...]


  5. I really wanted to like this book Hitchcock has a good reputation, his Recovery of the Sacred is an important and worthwhile book, and I d like to know a good readily available book on the history of the Church.But the problem is that his command of theology is not as good as he thinks it is From the introduction Jesus parable of the wheat and the tares teaches that good and evil exist together in the world, and the reality of human freedom provides the only satisfactory explanation of moral evi [...]


  6. An appallingly slipshod, error strewn work that is an enormous disappointment not only coming from Hitchcock, but also from Ignatius Press, which used to be a reliable outfit This book should not be recommended or read for reasons I discuss in part here easternchristianbooks


  7. Thought provoking detailed summarycovering 2000 years of history in a single volume is a daunting task, and the author succeeds on many levels the number of events and person identified and discussed is amazing Fundamental to the book is the author s respect for the faith tradition and for the ongoing guidance provided to the church whose history is recorded here.


  8. An excellent survey of 2000 years of church history Well organized, and very fluid writing make this book a very accessible read Helped point me to a number of follow up sources I would eventually like to study.


  9. A good quick reference However as cover to cover reading it is dry and moves too quickly A as scholarly work it lacks depth, references, and a bibliography.



  10. very comprehensive, scholarly and well documented Covers history from time of Christ and Apostles to 2010 before Pope Francis.
