LIGHT TO THE NATIONS STUDENT PART 2Price: $32
This volume presents the history of the modern era in story form, giving proper emphasis to dates, central characters, and key concepts in each era. The central consideration of this volume is how modern ideas, institutions, and culture have developed from the high centuries of Christian culture. Drawing on the guidance of Catholic thinkers and the popes (particularly Leo XIII, Pius XI, Pius XII, John Paul II, and Benedict XVI), this history presents the hope that Christian thought and work hold for the future. End of chapter reviews and other material highlight dates and events, characters in history, and definitions of key terms.
This second volume begins at the Enlightenment and considers how modern ideas, institutions, and cultures have developed from the high centuries of Christianity.
