Catholic Library World, December, 2006

This compact volume, designed for high school use but also suitable for some college classes, contains 30 selections spanning the Church's history from Acts of the Apostles to the Second Vatican Council. The balance of social, institutional, and intellectual history is just right, with Augustine's City of God appearing alongside Constantine's Edict of Milan and Dorothy Day juxtaposed to the Second Vatican Council.
