Story of the Church–Book Review

What a truly wonderful book! When I selected this book as a part of the reviewer program for catholiccompany.com, I was expecting a dry, factual history of the Church. While there is nothing wrong with that format for a history book, this is not that type of book. The author tells the history of the Church through stories, fictional accounts, of life in the Church. He then delves deeper and explains what is going on during each significant period of Church history. I was truly excited to read this book!

The chapters are short and there are questions at the end of each chapter for personal reflection or discussion. If you are a homeschool parent with high school students, I highly recommend using this as a text on Church history for your teens. It is engaging and informative and definitely not “boring”, as some teens find history. Make sure you check out The Story of the Church today!
