It is no coincidence I just finished (and loved) this book. Because the title was me. I will tell you what I mean.
A few years ago my brother-in-law bought us a series of CDs called " A History of the Catholic Church. One, Holy and Apostolic?" This was a very thoughtful gift. I immediately noticed the question mark in the title. Then checked the supplemental book for a church seal of approval (called a Nihil Obstat or Imprimatur) and found neither. I put the gift inside a cabinet. I didn't want to listen to a secular manipulation of the Catholic faith, like another History Channel mockery of Jesus. Well two years later, I decided to throw the unopened tapes away. I couldn't donate heresies after all! My husband saw them and said, "I am going to listen to these on the way to work." I warned him. Guess what?! These tapes are like buried treasures! We both are fascinated with the amazing history and loving every single minute basking in the knowledge the professor shares on these tapes. The practicing Catholic professor. Here is a blatant example of preconceived judgement....pride and prejudice.
