How did the Catholic Church get started? Here is recorded the exciting history of the Catholic Church, beginning with the descent of the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles on Pentecost Sunday and continuing through the death of St. John the Evan-gelist at the end of the first century. The author relates all the principal events in the dramatic founding of the Catholic Church:
The conversion of 3,000 when the Apostles first left the Cenacle, the stoning of St. Stephen (the first martyr), the miraculous conversion of St. Paul, his extraordinary missionary journeys, the conversion of Cornelius (the first gentile Christian), the Council of Jerusalem, the martyrdom of St. James, how the Apostles propagated the new religion, Sts. Peter and Paul in Rome, their martyrdom, the early persecutions, the destruction of Jerusalem, the writing of the New Testament, the early popes and martyrs, and the death of St. John. This book will show that the Apostles and their disciples were on fire with Christ, literally consumed themselves spreading Christianity, and testified to its truth with their blood.
