WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE CRADLE OF CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION? More important: what do you suppose your children or grandchildren know? Christian civilization sprouted out of Europe, feeding off earlier cultures farther to the East. It was brought to our shores Columbus, the great Jesuit martyrs, and early American churchmen played key roles. But somewhere along the line, amid the cares of life and the sheer effort needed to earn a living, most of us have forgotten what civilization is how its handed down from generation to generation why its crucial if our children and theirs are to inherit our way of life. With this in mind, Roman Catholic Books has brought back into print one of the most popular basic texts of the mid 20th Century an era before educators, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, grew ashamed of their roots.
W. Eugene Shiels, S.J. was Associate Professor of History at Loyola University in Chicago. HIs other works include King and the Church: The Rise and Fall of the Patronato Real, and Gonzalo De Tapia: Founder of the First Permanent Jesuit Mission in North America.
