Barron's book is an intelligent, informed look at Catholicism's first two millennia.

"Catholicicsm" is "A Journey to the Heart of the Faith" in the sense that Barron touches on the core, the basics, of what the Catholic Church is and has been teaching.

It's not, however, an exhaustive look. The hardcover edition is just under 300 pages; including an index, which runs from Aaron through Lough Derg and "Lord of the Rings" to Zumárraga, Bishop Juan.

I think it's a pretty good introduction to the art, architecture, philosophies, philosophers, Saints and beliefs of my faith. I'm currently on a second read-through, this time taking notes.
