"Enemies of the Catholic church wish to say that e.g., it is against science. This book, among other things, shows that science as we know it came out of the Middle Ages' study of "natural philosophy"."
"The last Father of the church lived in the 700s. This is a collection of all the Fathers' writings. There is a list of over 1000 Catholic beliefs, showing that those beliefs were consistently held for those 700+ years. Again, as Newman said, "to study history is to become Catholic." Protestants are deathly afraid to read books like this."
"Convincingly debunks the notion that Mark's gospel was the first. Shows many undesired results of holding on to this myth. Shows that the order in which the gospels were written was probably Matthew, Luke, Mark and John."
"Very scholarly book in which St. Stanislaus Kostka parish - the one which will figure greatly in my own subsequent books - played a great part. The picture on the cover is of the church before it lost one baroque tower, and the other was bastardized by some high-school dropout."
