Concise but thorough. Hitchcock’s writing style is a joy to read. It’s hard to put down.Truly a new work. Not just built on the back of previous works.

An excellent history of the Catholic Church; you will learn a lot. But this should not be the first history of the Church that you read because it is arranged topically rather than chronologically. Read a straight chronological history first and then have a timeline in front of you when you read Hitchcock's work.

This terrific book packs 2000 years of Catholic Church history into 500 pages in a highly-readable, organized, and appealing way. It is a good basic book, presenting chronological facts that entice the reader to learn more about particular topics. The author loves Blessed Pope John Paul II and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, yet he does not shy away from negative personalities or historical events. What needs improvement: With the exception of a few women saints and members of nobility, women’s history is excluded. Would highly recommend for college reading with additional supplemental materials.
