Editorial Reviews

Review

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.

By Timothy on November 8, 2014
Format: Paperback
Steer clear of this book. What a mishap and disaster. Chapter 6 alone on the Crusades is a slander against Holy Mother Church and a complete misreading of the historical events. Pick up Rodney Stark's "God's Battalions" or even better Thomas Madden's "A New Concise History of the Crusades" for accurate historical information. Church History is a specialization of mine and we considered this book for a parish study. If you need a solid alternative, read James Hitchock's new volume "History of the Catholic Church: From the Apostolic Age to the Third Millennium". All of these titles are available from Amazon. This book is a travesty regurgitating urban legends far detached from reality. A complete whitewash of Muslim aggression and slaughter. I also recommend Diane Moczar and her books especially "Seven Lies About Catholic History: Infamous Myths about the Church's Past and How to Answer Them." I wish the author would discontinue this book until he converts and recants and revises the errors found in his book.

Good reading; provides previously unknown (to me) information; contained 'moments' that I wasn't interested in reading about.
