Anyone know a good book on the whole (or at least most of) Church History, that is sympathetic to Catholicism but is not unjustifiably triumphalist, yet is rigidly historical? I'm looking for something for Historical Apologetics.

Preferably something easy to find at a Library, cheap, or in the public domain.

There's Warren Carroll. Don't know how accurate he is.

Never finished. I wish I knew of such a book, but I don't.

His wife was what actually got me thinking about this. The Fraternity of Saint Peter's New Letters have summaries of Anne Carroll's book Christ the King Lord of History.

However I haven't found a good review of it.

There is Dulles: History of Apologetics.
Some have called it dry. I call it lightning fast.

I would recommend Church History: A History of the Catholic Church to 1940 by Fr. John Laux, M.A. It's very concise. I had just given away my only copy but you can probably find it on Amazon.

I am increasingly impressed by Fr Joseph McSorley's An Outline History of the Church by Centuries, although I keep finding myself wishing he could have written more about almost every issue. See separate thread on the book for further comment.
