Reviews - What do customers think about OSV's Encyclopedia of Catholic History?

Good reference book, but don't expect miracles  Dec 20, 2001
As a history Student at a secular University, this is a decent book to begin to get direction for research. It is well written and easy to read.

If you're looking for a good reference book for Catholic history, this is it! But beware this isn't a substitute for the Catholic Encyclopedia by a long shot. Bunson pacts in an fantastic amount of info into the 900 pages, and it's a great addition to any person library or Catechism class.

Concise history of the church  Apr 13, 1999
Very user friendly. A comprehensive, concise reference that is easy to read and understand. An essential part of the OSV reference series.
