Christian history tells the story not of an empire, nor of a culture, but of a family. The authors in this series strive to communicate that history in a way that’s accessible and even entertaining. They see history as true stories well told. They don’t fear humor or pathos as threats to their trustworthiness. They are unabashed about their chosen perspective, but they are neither producing propaganda nor trashing tradition. The Catholic Church’s story is our inheritance, our legacy, our pride and joy, and our cautionary tale.
