This text begins with the story of God’s definitive intervention into human history in the Person of his Son and continues through his Church to the present day. In his plan of salvation, God sent the Holy Spirit to act through members of the Church to further his salvific mission to the whole world. It examines the lives of the saints and how they—by cooperating with God’s grace in response to their divine vocations—helped to shape the life of the Church as well as Christian society and culture.
This book, The History of the Church, corresponds to Elective B: History of the Catholic Church in the curriculum framework.
