Triumph: The Power and the Glory of the Catholic Church Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For 2,000 years, Catholicism-the largest religion in the world and in the United States--has shaped global history on a scale unequaled by any other institution. But until now, Catholicsinterested in their faith have been hard-pressed to find an accessible, affirmative, and exciting history of the Church.

"Triumph" is that history. Inside, you'll discover the spectacular story ofthe Church from Biblical times and the early days of St. Peter-the first pope--to the twilight years of John Paul II. It is a sweeping drama of Roman legions, great crusades, epic battles, toppledempires, heroic saints, and enduring faith. And, there are stormy controversies: Dark Age skullduggery, the Inquistition, the Renaissance popes, the Reformation, the Church's refusal to accept sexual liberation andcontemporary allegations like those made in "Hitler's Pope" and "Papal Sin."

A brawling, colorful history full of inspiring pageantry and spirited polemic, "Triumph" will exhilarate, amuse, and infuriate as it extols the glories of Catholic history and the gripping stories of its greatest men and women.

"From the Hardcover edition."
