A complete history of the Church from the beginning to 1940. Written for both students and adults.
The author intersperses the history with many brief, interesting biographies of famous people, and at the end of each chapter he quotes briefly from a famous writing of the era, blending a medley of elements into a comprehensive historical composition that is at once brilliant and fascinating.
A story of the Church unparalleled in its scope, depth, variety and impact, and a book all Catholics should read.

|Review:||This book is so far the best of Church History in my search. I have bought several different books on Church History but I honestly think this is one of the best by Fr. Laux. Absolutely a fantastic book. It has complete details & dates. I recommend it for any serious student of history. Great book with complete scholarship.|
