Description: The Catholic Church through the Ages, now in its second edition, is a one-volume survey of the history of the Catholic Church from its beginning until, and including, the pontificate of Pope Francis. This book explains the Church's progress by using Christopher Dawson's division of the Church's history into six distinct "ages", or 350-400 year periods of time, each cycle beginning with great enthusiasm and advancement and ending in decline and loss.

Writing with the experience of thirty years of teaching, the author has emphasised such areas as monasticism, the Crusades, medieval theology, the Inquisition, Reformation, French Revolution, the nineteenth century, and the Church in the United States. And he has added material on John Henry Newman, the Catholic literary revival that took place in several countries in the early twentieth-century, and the last three popes.

As a supplement to each chapter, the author has updated the recommended readings and bibliography, as well as the audiovisual materials.
