    Filled with inaccurracies, amid a very biased view of history, I did not like this book. I have no problems with the Catholic emphasis. What I take issue with is that Anne Carroll seems to feel that no Catholic can be portrayed as in the wrong and that most, read Isabel and the Habsburgs, were saints from infancy. She writes as if she had special insight into their thoughts and motivation. And while, yes, many rulers did make choices that benefited Christendom, very few were utterly altruistic.

Still, taken with a number of other histories and supplemental materials, this could be of benefit as a book, if it is clearly seen where it is weak and flawed and where it gets things right.

    I read this book at the recommendation of someone from my church. It's supposed to be a world history from the perspective of Catholicism with Christ as the center of historical progression--which I thought was an interesting idea. But no, this book is terrrrrrible. It's pure propaganda. It's like something written in Soviet Russia. I can understand that writing from a declared point of view necessitates a bias and obvious emphases and opinions, but this book is unfairly dismissive of anything t I read this book at the recommendation of someone from my church.

I can understand that writing from a declared point of view necessitates a bias and obvious emphases and opinions, but this book is unfairly dismissive of anything that doesn't fit its ultra-conservative Catholic agenda. There are plenty of examples, but my favorite is how it describes Joseph McCarthy as a hero who was victimized by liberals and his "enemies" in the government. Poor, poor Joe, he was right--everyone just turned against him. The author describes the high middle ages as "the greatest century in history"!(!!!!) Another thing she does is gives inaccurate, opinionated definitions of major historical concepts. She describes Communism and capitalism as inherently evil and calls Middle Ages Feudalism a fair and Christian "distributism." Come on, someone studying history (especially high school kids, to whom this book is directed) needs direct, legitimate definitions of these words before they can make a real evaluation of history. The thing is, apparently the author doesn't want them to make a real evaluation of history. She wants to brainwash them. It stinks, too, because if the idea of this book were done by a legitimate historian in a legitimate way, it could be very interesting.

    I never did like history in school and I wished I had read this book then. I love history now and my Catholic faith. Carroll has highlighted the significance of how the birth of Christ is central to all the events that happened before and after Christ's birth. One will better understand the reason for Christendom's rise and fall. It's so well written depicting every event of Christian history that you would like to reread it often as I have already done twice.

A book that's actually meant for high school students as a textbook but anyone with interest in Christian history will enjoy it thoroughly. Highly recommended to those who didn't like history in school.

    I'm sad to say that I really didn't enjoy this book. I found her way of explaining things dull, and I thought it was very hard to get through, especially since we had it as a history book for school and a huge book of questions to go along with it... I felt like she was just re-explaining things I already knew, and she never really talked about one important thing. The lessons were very long, but she barely skimmed over the facts of each subject... I'm sad to say that I really didn't enjoy this book.

    I love the writing style. It makes it easier to read and remember. However, the history in this nook in particular seems somewhat off. I can't remember all of the mistakes right now, but it's enough that my brother won't use it any more. Her book on American history is a lot more accurate, though. I love the writing style.

    I had high hopes when I began reading this book, but found it inaccurate, poorly written and severely lacking in sources. It was a huge disappointment.

    This book is kinda bias as a catholic i think it was unfair how you call Hindu bad, or don’t know the real truth. Just because they don’t have the same views as Christians doesn’t mean they are bad. Like Yes the caste system is bad and etc but that doesn’t mean the Church also is purely good. Smh also how this book compares everything to the Israelites like how it says the Greeks were able to win a war just like the israelites who were guided by God and then when the greek philosophers don’t hav This book is kinda bias as a catholic i think it was unfair how you call Hindu bad, or don’t know the real truth.

No it doesn’t mean they don’t know less it just means everyoen is different...
