Epic: The Early Church

by Steve Weidenkopf

Discover the amazing story of the first 500 years of Church history—a time filled with courageous saints, brilliant philosophers, eloquent theologians, ruthless emperors, and heroic martyrs. Blessed John Paul II said, “Christ is the foundation and center of history, he is its meaning and ultimate goal.” This exciting study program encourages people to grow closer to Christ through a deeper understanding of His Church.
