Great History

I know about the history of the church in my neck of the woods, but very little about other areas. This filled in a lot of gaps. It’s a very pleasant read.

Interesting Book

I recently gave a copy to a friend (the mother of a priest) for her birthday. Her response after starting to read it: 'It is really good. Very informative and balanced.'
