This comprehensive history of the Catholic Church includes every major event in the Church’s history from the life of her founder, Jesus Christ, to the present day. This textbook places the Church in her context throughout history and explains the role that the Church and her leaders have played in the shaping of history for better and worse.

Complete with maps, timelines, sidebars, paintings, and photographs, The History of The Church is a critical historical resource for Catholic and non-Catholic historians alike.

The Didache Complete Course Series is a series of four high school textbooks, teacher’s manuals, and student workbooks published by Midwest Theological Forum. Each title spans one academic year. As of 2009, they were being used in about one-third Catholic high schools.

This textbook is published with ecclesiastical approval from the Archdiocese of Chicago, and it has been granted conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church by the USCCB Subcommittee on the Catechism.

Church History Well Done


I bought this after hearing Fr Ripperger recommend learning about church history. I am a convert from Protestantism and I know little about the church’s background. I chose this version of learning about the subject because it had a workbook and I thought it would be good to answer questions about the material I had read. I’ve read through most of the beginning and the first chapter. I love how it’s broken down in small sections with lots of informative pictures and maps. I often only have 5-10 minutes to spare so this is very helpful. I usually answer the questions as I’m reading each section and have only come across a handful of questions that require deductions based on what I read. The majority of the time the questions are directly captured from the text. I wish I could spend more time on the book. It’s a very good resource.


Excellent resource!


We are using this as our sophomore religion course. We used the Didache for freshman religion as well, but I did not have the workbook to go along. Using the workbook and text is wonderful!! The tests/quizzes that are included (with the teachers’ manual) are representative of the things that are taught in the chapter. So far (5 weeks) this has been a great class.
