Delivered as promised! Aug 3, 2008
Had to order textbooks for my two boys who are in high school. Very easy to order. The right price AND delivered as promised.
The Church: Our Story Dec 26, 2001
I used this as a textbook with high school freshmen. It was very informative, but challenging for that level. Driedger takes a thematic approach to church history. So this book is better for understanding who and where the Catholic Church is now than as a comprehensive survey of church history. In fact, it would be helpful to know the basics of Christian history before you delve into this text. The author's religious approach is open minded. She presents the official teachings without being too fundamentalist or rigid. Once the reader gets used to the author's style, this book has much to offer for understanding the contemporary Catholic Church.
good introduction Oct 21, 2000
This text is a helpful introduction to Catholicism. I highly recommend it for those who are interested in learning the fundamental Catholic convictions about the Church. It works well in RCIA discussions.
