For 2,000 years, Catholicism--the largest religion in the world and in the United States--has shaped global history on a scale unequaled by any other institution. But until now, Catholics interested in their faith have been hard-pressed to find an accessible, affirmative, and exciting history of the Church. <br /> <i>Triumph</i> is that history. Inside, you'll discover the spectacular story of the Church from Biblical times and the early days of St. Peter--the first pope--to the twilight years of John Paul II. It is a sweeping drama of Roman legions, great crusades, epic battles, toppled empires, heroic saints, and enduring faith. And, there are stormy controversies: Dark Age skullduggery, the Inquistition, the Renaissance popes, the Reformation, the Church's refusal to accept sexual liberation and contemporary allegations like those made in <i>Hitler's Pope</i> and <i>Papal Sin.</i> <br />A brawling, colorful history full of inspiring pageantry and spirited polemic, <i>Triumph</i> will exhilarate, amuse, and infuriate as it extols the glories of Catholic history and the gripping stories of its greatest men and women. <p></p> <i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
