In this unique, rich, and eye-catching book, popular Catholic author Mike Aquilina tells the Christian story through the examination of 100 objects and places. Some, like Michelangelo's Piet, are priceless works of art. Others, like a union membership pen, don't hold much monetary value. But through each of them, Aquilina offers a memorable and rewarding look at the history of the Church. When Catholics tell their story, they don't just write it in books. They preserve it in memorials, monuments, artifacts, and museums. They build grand basilicas to house tiny relics. In this stunning book, Aquilina, together with his writer-daughter Grace, show how the history of the Church didn't take place shrouded in the mists of time. It actually happened and continues to happen through things that we can see and sometimes hold in our hand.
The book is in excellent condition, with only some very minor signs of wear on the very edges of the cover, mostly at the corners and bottom of the spine. Internally, the condition is the same, with clean pages, strong binding and no loose sheets.
