Loved it! Jun 29, 2006
This is a well written and researched text. It gives a good balance to all the anti-Catholic texts that are in print. I found it easy to read. My student enjoyed the book and increased her love of history. We used the study guide as well.
Really excellent! Jul 19, 2005
This is yet another wonderful surprise from the talented pen of Ann Carroll. The book is an inclusive and well written account of the influence of our Lord and Savior on American history. Although I am priviliged to be degreed in history, it was in this excellent and important book that I really came to understand the important notion of subsidiarity. This concept holds as follows:
One of the key principles of Catholic social thought is known as the principle of subsidiarity. This tenet argues that nothing should be done by a larger and more complex organization which can be done as well by a smaller and simpler organization. In other words, any activity which can be performed by a more decentralized entity should be. This principle is a bulwark of limited government and personal freedom. It conflicts with the passion for centralization and bureaucracy characteristic of the Welfare State.
Would that our legislative, executive, and judicial servants understood this important concept! Perhaps one day they will. Bravo once again to Mrs. Carroll!

Catholic History made Readable and Informative Apr 6, 2000
Well worth its price, this book covers the history of the Catholic Church in America in great detail. It combines interesting stories with the basic facts. With a good index, I need no other book to study American Church History.
