$ 18.99
The history of Catholicism is the history of Christian faith. Anthony E. Gilles traces its development—from its beginnings in hushed gatherings within the Roman Empire to its current size and influence—in an accessible and enjoyable style. A revised and updated compilation of the history volumes from his best-selling People of God series, this book will help you understand how the Church developed in relation to, or in rebellion against, the larger culture. It details centuries of crucial turning points from the development of apostolic succession to the implementation of the reforms of Vatican II. Complete with maps, timelines and special "focus" sections on important events and issues, this valuable resource belongs in the collection of every student of Church history.

People of God: The History of Catholic Christianity

I am only about 3 chapters into this book,I am enjoying it very much. I find it gives me a good perspective of what life must have been like in the early days of the Church. It is easy to understand and I've already learned so much about our beautiful Church.

I absolutely love the book even though I have only read 1.5 chapters. I don't want to put it down bc it's loaded with so much history of the world interacting with God, Jesus and Christianity. I love the chronological order of things such as who was Pope, relevant Bishops, etc. in the Church along with the intersection of Rulers, Kings and powerful public figures at particular times. It shows me God's power, love for us in how these things have worked out up to now.

Peace in Christ
