Endorsements & Reviews-

"A charming and powerful example of how a great mass of material can be presented in an interesting and accurate manner. . . An excellent book for personal reading but. . . the perfect text for religion courses, C.C.D. programs, and adult education."
- Spirituality Today

"[A] unique, people-oriented approach to the history of the Roman Catholic church. . . An ambitious, enlightening study not strictly for Catholics and suitable both for teaching and individual research."

- Booklist

"A Catholic would welcome [it] as a gift."

- Andrew M. Greeley, American Bookseller

"A work important both for itself and for the method it uses. . . Cunningham manages to convey a sweep of Catholic history and tradition that is remarkable. . . [it] may well become a classic in its own right."
- Best Sellers

"An attractive text for an introductory course on Catholicism for college undergraduates, something many of us have been looking for in vain in recent years."
-Cross Currents

"In a novel and engaging way, it presents a rather comprehensive picture of the many-faceted Roman Catholic tradition. Emphasis is on the spiritual rather than on the political or doctrinal. . . A list of 'Readings and Trajectories' at the end of each chapter. . . enhances the value of the book."

- The Living Light

"A good book, written out of classroom experience, waiting to be taken back into the classroom."

- New Catholic World
