    "Modern Scholar Wins!"
    Would you listen to The Modern Scholar again? Why?

    Yes, compared to the Great Courses overview of the Catholic Church, it was a fair, clear, and comprehensive chronological overview of the Catholic faith. The information is provided in a clear and concise manner, that is easily recalled later.

    "Loved it! A great listen."

    If you like the middle ages and/or the Catholic Church, you will love this audio book. The delivery can be a little dry at times, and you may need high-quality ear buds to ensure a non-muffled sound, but overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks Mr. Madden!
