Reviews of Tumultuous Times
An exhaustive look at the history of the Catholic religion Written by two priests who are identical twins and members of the Congregation of the Mary Immaculate Queen, Tumultuous Times: Twenty General Councils of the Catholic Church & Vatican II and Its Aftermath is an exhaustive look at the history of the Catholic religion. The first half extensively describes the history of the "Twenty General Councils of the Catholic Church" from 325-1870 AD and their role in defining and clarifying Catholic doctrine. The second half scrutinizes "Vatican II and Its Aftermath" (1962-1965), including the New Mass and Sacraments. Emphasizing the importance of constancy in church doctrine despite pressure from outside and constantly changing environments, Tumultuous Times is a resource that reflects the abiding faith of its authors, as well as their passionate conviction that that there can only be one true church. A powerfully written blend of extensive research and deeply held belief in the value of staying true to faith and tradition. - Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA) A Must Read for all Catholics A must on any list of religious books, the impeccably researched work, Tumultuous Times, is an unprecedented work and makes the history of the Catholic Church come alive. Tumultuous Times will appeal to a wide audience, from the high school student to the theological expert. It has an extensive bibliography and could be used as a textbook on Church history. Numerous charts, 20 maps and extensive footnotes, bibliography and index make it a great research book. - Paula M. Storm, M.I.L.S., an academic Librarian Greatest work of research on the Church today! This book is at its base a history book, very thorough in its approach, yet incredibly fascinating and very easy to read. If there is only one book that you will read in regards to religion, let this be the one. - Barnes & Noble Enormously informative! The author's passion for the subject is evident throughout the text, and this two-piece tome is quite an accomplishment. The author is a tireless researcher, and the thoroughness of this endeavor is impressive. Summarizing the history of the general councils of the Catholic Church is a huge undertaking, and this author should feel very proud for having compiled this text. It's enormously informative and certainly interesting for the devout Catholic reader interested in his/her religion's history. - Writer's Digest International Book Awards
