The only reason I gave the book four stars was due to Barnes and Noble sending me a paperback version rather than the hardback version advertised. Now that the matter of my rating is out of the way, this is a well researched guide into the history of the Church and the battles it has fought against heresy. The author did an excellent job fleshing out the details surrounding each heresy and providing a brief overview of each heresy at the end of the chapter. There were a few obvious grammatical errors that should have been caught by the editor, but they do not cause any deviation from the argument. Other than the issue with B&N, I would have given this book five stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I purchased this book in reference to the Creed, but in addition, was pleased to see a well written, concise history. Fr. Hogan's synopsis of John Paul II's thought and writings at the end are reason enough to purchase the book. His writing style is accessible for the non-expert, but has the depth to respect the subject matter.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
