About the book:

In this extraordinary book, the renowned Hans Kung chronicles the Roman Catholic Churchs role as a world power throughout history. He examines great schisms  between East and West, Catholicism and Protestantism  the evolving role of the papacy and the stories of the great reforming popes; and the expansion of a global Church infrastructure. The book concluded with a searching assessment of how the Catholic faith will confront the immense challenges posed in the new millennium by the scientific community, by women questioning their role in the Church, and by those seeking reform of the strictures against abortion and contraception. The Catholic Church is a landmark book by a controversial and profoundly influential thinker.
