Can you recommend a book on the glory of the Catholic Church?

I have been receiving “love-bombs” from members of my former Protestant church trying to convince me that the Catholic Church is the Whore of Babylon, pursuant to Dave Hunt’s interpretation of the Book of Revelation.

I have read rebuttals to Dave Hunt’s claim’s written by Jimmy Akin and featured on Catholic Answers’ web site (here and here). I was wondering though if you could recommend any books that talk about all the good that the Catholic Church has done. Are there any books that detail that glory of the Catholic Church throughout history?
