Product Description

This critically acclaimed history is now updated and expanded for the student of the 1990's. It remains a singularly useful reference work, covering the significant events and action over the past two millennia. Divided into five parts, corresponding to the major historic and epochal developments in the Church from its triumph over paganism through "the sound and fury of renewal" to a new section covering such topics as dissent, current developments in the ecumenical movement, and liberation theology Bokenkotter's work, in the words of one reviewer, is "a tract for the times, an attempt to help bewildered Roman Catholics and others get some sense of the origins of all the change that has streamed through the windows by Vatican II."

Publisher's Description

Expanded and updated for the new millennium.

Covering the life of Christ, the election of Pope Benedict XVI, and everything in between, A Concise History of the Catholic Church has been one of the bestselling religious histories of the past two decades and a mainstay for scholars, students, and others looking for a definitive, accessible history of Catholicism. With a clarity that will appeal to any reader, Thomas Bokenkotter divides his study into five parts that correspond to the major historical and epochal developments in Catholicism. His authoritative, thorough approach takes readers from the Church’s triumph over paganism, through "the sound and fury of renewal," to a new section devoted to such topics as dissent and current developments in the ecumenical movement. Informative illustrations throughout the book, new to this edition, enrich the reader's experience, and the addition of a wide-ranging bibliography increases its value as a sourcebook.
