Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know is essential reading for any Catholic who wants to understand the history of our Faith. But it will give you more than knowledge: you’ll close this book with renewed confidence that no matter how dark and dangerous the times may be, God has never abandoned his people and never will. This book finds the answer in history: from the first days of the Christian era, at key moments when civilization hung in the balance, God has intervened and always he has come forward himself or given strength to those who were faithful to him. Here, too, are the wars and plagues, the ideas, institutions, and miracles that gave birth to our Christian civilization and often threatened to doom it.
