Book ¨The Catholic Church through the Ages"

Has anyone read this book that is a short history of the Catholic Church by John Vidmar? I am about 12 pages or so into the book and already I have found a red-flag in that the author claims that Our Lord lived to be about 30 years of age. I know that Our Lord began his public ministry at age 30 and died at age 33.

I am wondering if others have read this book through and can comment on it.

Thanks and God bless
