The Definitive Concise Guide to the History of the American Catholic Church.
The Catholic Church in America was built in the missions of the West, the slums of New York, and the heartland of the Midwest by ordinary believers forging extraordinary lives. American and Catholic
tells their stories, which become the story of the Church. It tackles difficult topics such as slavery, the treatment of Native Americans, martyrdom, the role of women, and immigration in a balanced, nuanced way. From the time of the first European explorers to the twenty-first century, it offers glimpses into the long, sometimes painful, and always changing life of the Catholic Church in America. Includes illustrations, maps and photographs. Paperback, 5.5 x 8.5, 224 pages. (©2015)
