Christendom College professor Steve Weidenkopf’s latest work, Timeless: A History of the Catholic Church, has been named a finalist for the Association of Catholic Publishers (ACP) 2020 Excellence in Publishing Awards. The book, called “a rare gem,” details the history of the Catholic Church in one volume, stretching from Pentecost to the present day.

Weidenkopf, who teaches Church history at Christendom’s graduate school, is a prolific author, with two other acclaimed works to his name: The Glory of the Crusades and The Real Story of Catholic History: Answering Twenty Centuries of Anti-Catholic Myths. He is also the creator, co-author, and presenter of the adult faith formation program Epic: A Journey through Church History.

The nomination marks Weidenkopf’s first for the ACP Excellence in Publishing Awards. He joins other distinguished nominees this year, including Fr. Mike Schmitz, Thomas Merton, and Colleen Carroll Campbell.

Timeless is Weidenkopf’s most ambitious work yet, with the work adding him to the long list of historians that have written about the history of the Catholic Church — including Christendom’s founder, Dr. Warren H. Carroll. Upon release, the book immediately began receiving acclaim, including from Christopher Check, president of Catholic Answers.

“I have been waiting for this book, and I didn’t think it could be done,” states Check. “But here it is: a one-volume history of the Catholic Church that I can recommend without reservation! No sneering triumphalism. No groveling apologies. Just the glorious story of the greatest institution in history, written how history should be written — lively, compelling, inspiring, and true.”
