Item description for Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know: The Divine Surprises and Chastisements That Shaped the Church and Changed the World by Diane Moczar...

Overview
Here are the saints and sinners, popes and kings that God used to shape his Church and change the world. You'll meet Clovis and Charlemagne, Luther and Pope Leo, Suleiman and St. Francis, the Arians, the Franks, the Huguenots, and others whose sins or sacrifices altered the course of history. Here, too, are the wars and plagues, the ideas and institutions - and, yes, the miracles - that gave birth to our Christian civilization and often threatened to doom it. Experience the battles of Tours and Lepanto, the Crusades, the Russian Revolution, and Fatima, the miracle that foretold (and offered a way to prevent) the conflicts that killed millions in the twentieth century. Wars and terrorism have rendered the first years of our new century no less bloody. Has God now abandoned us? Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know finds the answer in history: from the first days of the Christian era, at key moments when civilization hung in the balance, God has intervened - sometimes subtly, sometimes dramatically - but ever and always he has come forward himself or given strength to those who were faithful to him. Consider, for example: Constantine, the pagan general who, in a desperate hour, saw a vision that made him a Christian and led to the conversion of the entire Roman Empire Pope St. Leo, who confronted Attila the Hun face-to-face and, without sword or dagger, turned back this "Scourge of God" and all his murderous hordes The surprising victories of the outgunned armies that thrust back the Moors, the Turks, and the barbarians - just when Christendom faced annihilation Plus: St. Genevieve, Pepin the Short, Pope St. Pius V, St. Margaret Mary, and countless others who, in crucial moments, were called by God to save his people and give new life to our culture and his Church. Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know is essential reading for any Catholic who wants to understand the history of our Faith. But it will give you more than knowledge: you'll close this book with renewed confidence that no matter how dark and dangerous the times may be, God has never abandoned his people . . . and never will.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know?

Too broad to take too seriously...  Jun 10, 2008
For 177 pages the author only provides 8 endnotes. With that said, it is understandably frustrating to read some rather sensational quotes that are then not cited. This is poor work.

I usually enjoy Sophia Press works and I appreciate Moczar's love of the Church but this work is not one I find worthwhile to read.
 
Wonderful Unbiased History  Feb 23, 2007
This book is so wonderful. If you love history and want the truth you should get this book. It's about time someone wrote the truth instead of what is written in most of today's textbooks. It's amazing!! Everything I learned in school was wrong and slanted. Thank you for showing me that to study history is to cease to be protestant!!
 
everything your Catholic school teachers should've taught you but didn't  Jan 28, 2007
If you're like me and went to Catholic school in the 80s you probably learned nothing in religion class except how to make ugly felt and burlap banners. Diane Moczar has written the book for you. It's a lightning fast,exciting and beautifully written overview of the ten most important dates in Catholic history.

I was thrilled reading about how God used flawed, difficult (Constantine was no choir boy) people to make history. Dr. Moczar has a marvelous sense of humor and I'd love to sit in on one of her classes. Her descpriptions of the teenaged King Clovis, his saintly bride, Rapsputin, Pope Leo and Saint Bruno were marvelous. Two women mentioned were particularly awesome: Saint Genevieve, the protectress of Paris and Countess Matilda who repeatedly fought off the Germans, and protected the pope.

I was especially moved by the pitiful end of the Dauphin of France and chilled by the descrption of the mess caused at the end of the Ottomans and how we are all still living with the mistakes made by the West then.

The last part of the book is on Fatima, and I was reminded that the visit from Our Lady was not a one time thing but a warning for our age as well as the people who lived in 1917.

This is an excellent book. I wish I could give it ten stars.
 
Interesting  Nov 9, 2006
This book has interesting facts about ten key historical events. I would have chosen other events. The book did not fulfill all my expectations; it is a good read, but it will not probably make it to my "reference library".
 
Excellent brief Catholic history book!   Nov 9, 2006
As a history-lover and a Catholic, I am always cautious when purchasing history books. Will it be biased, especailly against the Church? Does the author have an agenda, especially a heterodox one? If Catholic, will it include an accurate spiritual perspective? And of course, as with many unfortunate history books, is it boring?
This book is wonderful! An easy read, especially for a history book, but not lacking in sufficient detail. The book would provide one with a good, basic background, and could also be used as the first step towards a more involved study of the Church's history.
Just as the title implies, every Catholic should have a basic knowledge of the events in this book, and this book is a wonderful place to gain such knowledge. I would recommend it to all, including new converts. After all, to study Church history is to become Catholic.
A+
