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.… (mais)

Told from the perspective of somebody sympathetic to the Church, this provides a nice counter-point to many of the historical arguments against Catholicism and is well worthwhile for that reason.

On the other hand, the writing regularly crosses the line from biography to hagiography, with many characters introduced as "bold" or "working tirelessly". If an editor had toned down the superlatives, the rest of the book may have been more believably objective. ( )

Excellent presentation of the ups and downs of the Catholic Church with a focus on the critical moments. ( )

An excellent history up to the end of the Second Vatican Council in 1965 and its aftermath (first 75% of the book). Thereafter it goes downhill (final 25%). Readers should know that this book was first published in 1977. New editions with added material were released in 1979, 1990, 2004, and 2005. Unfortunately, the new material was simply tacked on to the old with apparently no effort to update the language, verb tenses, etc. in the older text to reflect the fact that time had passed between the additions/editions. Should have ended so much better. ( )

The Catholic Church has always claimed Jesus of Nazareth as its founder, and nearly everyone is familiar with the basic facts about this dynamic Jewish preacher and healer who was born around the turn of the century A.D. (proabably between 6 B.C. and A.D. 6) and was crucified by the Romans between A.D. 28 and 30.
