Here, too, are the wars and plagues, the ideas and institutions -- and, yes, the miracles -- that gave birth to our Christian civilization and often threatened to doom it. Experience the battles of Tours and Lepanto, the Crusades, the Russian Revolution, and Fatima, the miracle that foretold (and offered a way to prevent) the conflicts that killed millions in the twentieth century.
Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know also shows that from the first days of the Christian era, at key moments when civilization hung in the balance, God has intervened - sometimes subtly, sometimes dramatically -- but ever and always he has come forward himself or given strength to those who were faithful to him.
