Review:

One of the key things many Catholics have lost since Vatican II is a sense of their own history. The future depends on our actions in the present, and the present depends on our memory of the past. Epic: A Journey Through Church History fills an urgent need for adult Catholics to recover their history as a believing community, debunk false criticisms of their Church, and understand the Christian underpinnings of the modern world. This is a vivid, thorough and engaging program. I heartily recommend it. --+Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Denver

"The Epic program is very impressive. The production quality is high. The timeline and periodization of two thousand years of Church history makes it approachable and understandable to the average Catholic to whom, after all, it belongs. Most Catholics know very little about the rich history of their Church. Anyone who goes through this program will not only have their knowledge and faith enriched, but will have the information necessary to answer the distortions of Catholic history that are so common in our world today. I plan to recommend its use in my own parish." --Thomas Madden Director of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Saint Louis University

This is Catholic history as it should be written, with Christ always at the center, and all the Popes features and listed, and the great saints and the doctors of the Church honored. --Warren H. Carroll, Founder of Christendom College
