For 2,000 years, Catholicism has shaped global history on a scale unequaled by any other institution--religious or secular. Triumph tells the spectacular story of the Church from biblical times and the early days of St. Peter to the twilight years of John Paul II. While author H.W. Crocker III is careful not to whitewash the stormy controversies in Church history--the Inquisition, the Renaissance Popes, and the Church's role in World War II--he offers an uplifting, affirmative, and exciting history answering the numerous recent books attacking the church, such as Constantine's Sword and Papal Sin.
Sweeping in scope, much like Paul Johnson's A History of the Jews, and full of spirited pageantry, like Arthur Herman's How the Scots Invented the Modern World, Triumph will exhilarate, amuse, and infuriate Catholic and non-Catholic readers alike.
