Reviews - What do customers think about The 33 Doctors Of The Church?
A great blessing Oct 17, 2007
While a bit intimidating in its heft, the intimidation stops there. This is one of the best-written books I have ever read about some of the greatest (and most humble) human beings to walk this earth and serve our Lord. It is accessible, funny, moving, fascinating and inspirational, enough so to get me to get many of the separate works by the doctors and devour them. This book will show you many ways to grow closer to God and serve Him better. I can't recommend it more highly for what should be the most important priority in your life.
Outstanding, Enlightening, and Entertaining Reading! Aug 13, 2006
This is such an interesting book! It is very accesible - not too heady and scholarly to enjoy.
Fr. Rengers tells the personal story of each of the beloved doctors of the Church. These are fascinating histories that include both the strengths and the weaknesses of each Saint. Fr. also gives a great synopsis of the impact, both immediate and long term, that each Doctor had on the Faith and Church.
It is rare to find such an academically outstanding book that is also just a down right fascinating read. This book will strengthen your faith, increase your understanding of Catholic doctrine and Church history, and will keep you amused for hours!
A GOLDMINE OF INFORMATION!! Sep 19, 2001
Great in-depth stories of the Church's greatest figures! Each chapter is almost a book in itself! A must-have for those serious about Catholic history, theology and Tradition!!
