MEDIA REVIEWS
In his third edition of Key Moments in Church History, Mitch Finley enlivens a topic which, in a less talented writer's hands, could have been deadly dull. Instead, in his usual down-to-earth narration and flowing style, Mitch presents events seemingly far removed from us--the Council of Trent, the Crusades, even the Reformation--as precious parts of our own past, events that brought the entire Catholic Church to where it now stands, for better or worse. The thought occurs more than once--what is happening today that may become a Key Moment for our descendents? Excellent and well-documented, worthy of being a must-read in any Catholic high school class, and beyond. -- Joan Wester Anderson, Author of the New York Times bestseller, Where Angels Walk
At last-a clear, concise history of the Church written for those who are not scholars and know relatively little about the Church's past or even that it had one! -- Rev. Andrew Greeley, S.J., Best-selling author, Professor of Sociology at the University of Arizona, and Research Associate with the National Opinion Resea
