Editorial Reviews


In his third edition of Key Moments in Church History, Mitch Finley enlivens a topic which, in a less talented writer's hands, could have been deadly dull. Instead, in his usual down-to-earth narration and flowing style, Mitch presents events seemingly far removed from us—-the Council of Trent, the Crusades, even the Reformation—-as precious parts of our own past, events that brought the entire Catholic Church to where it now stands, for better or worse. The thought occurs more than once—-what is happening today that may become a Key Moment for our descendents? Excellent and well-documented, worthy of being a must-read in any Catholic high school class, and beyond. (Joan Wester Anderson, Author of the New York Times bestseller, Where Angels Walk)

At last—a clear, concise history of the Church written for those who are not scholars and know relatively little about the Church's past or even that it had one! (Rev. Andrew Greeley, S.J., Best-selling author, Professor of Sociology at the University of Arizona, and Research Associate with the National Opinion Resea)

About the Author

Mitch Finley earned a B.A. in Religious Studies from Santa Clara University and an M.A. in Theology from Marquette University. He is the author of more than 30 books.
