Reviews - What do our customers think?
many names, dates, places, events not enough analysis  Jan 31, 2008
This book is a great resource for names, dates, places & fairly brief descriptions of events in American Catholic history. At times it is like browsing a phone book because the descriptions, analysis, summaries etc are so brief. Some pages have literally a dozen or more references. So my guess is this book is best suited for academics who want a good source for this kind of info.

For a more accessible history (for interested readers vs. academics) of Catholics in USA I'd also recommend the "American Catholic Experience" by J.Dolan
A good overview of Catholic in the U.S  Mar 15, 2002
I am taking a course in church history and this is the book we are currently using. I find that the text gives a good view of what catholic have had to face here in the US. It begins in Colonial times and goes into the 20th century (the book was written in 1981).

However, alot of topics are given a brief look with some names and dates mentioned, but no real detail. This makes the book boring at times and it would really be bad if my instructer didn't explain things more in class. This is a real good glance at the Church and I would recommend it along with a book that gives much more detail. The American Catholic Experience by jay Nolan would be a good bet.
