520    What are the origins of the Catholic Church? How has 
       Catholicism changed and adapted over the centuries? What 
       challenges does the Catholic Church face in the twenty-
       first century? Gerald O'Collins answers these and other 
       questions in this clear, accessible introduction to the 
       largest and oldest institution in the world. - ;Despite a 
       long history of external threats and internal strife, the 
       Roman Catholic Church and the broader reality of 
       Catholicism remain a vast and valuable presence into the 
       third millennium of world history. What are the origins of
       the Catholic Church? How has Catholicism changed and 
       adapted to such vast and diverse cultural influences over 
       the centuries? What great challenges does the Catholic 
       Church now face in the twenty-first century, both within 
       its own life and in its relation to others around the 
       world?. In this Very Short Introduction, Gerald O'Collins 
       draws on the best current scholarship available to answer 
       these questions and to present, in clear and accessible 
       language, a fresh introduction to the largest and oldest 
       institution in the world. -
