Item Description...
Overview
The story of the last millennium is, in largest part, the story of the rise of the Christian West. This fascinating book, assembled by the editors of the journal First Things, explores the religious and social development of the West during the past one thousand years by looking at ten people who defined the millennium. Written by a team of renowned scholars, the book treats the second millennium century by century, choosing one historical figure as the prism through which to view each period. While the individuals chosen are not necessarily "representative" figures_in some instances they are people who opposed the "spirit of the times"_the compelling personalities limned in these chapters help us to understand better where we have come so far. Insightful, authoritative, and a pleasure to read, these narratives not only open intriguing windows on key dimensions of the Christian West but also provide a panoramic view from which to comprehend all of modern history_a view well worth pondering as we begin the third one thousand years.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Roman Influenced Millenium Stars  Aug 11, 2004
Composed promptly after the hoopla over the millenium, this book sought to distinguish one individual from each century with an essay chosen by the editors of "First Things."

Richard John Neuhaus in writing the preface poignantly comments on how there was not much excitement here in the US outside of Y2K and the Roman Catholic church's Jubilee celebration.

Further RC influence shows up in selecting many from the world of philosophy (Aquinas, Dante, Rosseau, Maimonides) and two popes (John Paul II and Gregory VII). Throw in a Spanish RC backed explorer Columbus, and John Calvin and Abaraham Lincoln and you've got it. Pascal was an excellent choice which goes against this trend, and the article is absolutely marvelous, with quotes such as "Equally dangerous for man to know God without knowing his own wretchedness, and to know his wretchedness without knowing the Redeemer who can cure him of it."

I truly question the selection of the current pope and Calvin. The editors show their bias towards social/political activism in these choices.

The essays are well written and informative even if one questions their century hero.
