This book is really a beacon of truth in a world that has been clouded by unbelief and distrust in God's Holy Catholic Church. Unlike what other reviewers may lie to you about, the church has not destroyed the faith of western civilization, we have done that by our own perversion and aetheism. In fact this book clearly states how the church is the utmost provider of care for the poor, and how it has inspired so many to find God's truth. It is the true church which has grown and flourished through the centuries accomplishing feats of greatness through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. This book highlights the accomplishments of the church in modern culture and it's influence on ages to come.
