Reviews - What do customers think about Church History: Twenty Centuries of Catholic Christianity?

Editorialized History  May 20, 2007
This book could be a valuable addition to the student's library if it wasn't for the obvious editorializing which punctuates the chapters and betrays the author's anti-Catholic bias.

A much better source for serious study is the more scholarly work: "A Concise History of the Catholic Church" by Thomas Bokenkotter.
Highly prejudiced, dissident writes with ax to grind  Jan 17, 2005
All throughout the book, Mr. Dwyer betrays his own prejudices and sourness toward the Catholic Church. His Jesuit training comes through, which is not all bad, but at times gets in the way of objectivity. No Saint is given that title, nor is any pope titled Pope. Are you Catholic, or not, Mr. Dwyer? If you have a chip on your soulder about the church, write about that, but not church history. Also, you misrepresent western monasticism and Saint Benedict, either purposely, or through neglect. Likewise, you misrepresent St. Therese of Lisieux, comparing her with Luther. Are you unaware of her devotion to the Blessed Mother? Mostly, the book is on the politics of the papacy, with a sprinkling of other developments in church history. You don't seem to be outright anti-Catholic, but obviously infected with a lot of negativity, which, unfortunately, overshadows what truth you would present.
