Seven Lies about Catholic History: Infamous Myths about the Church's Past and How to Answer Them

( 10 )

Overview


The world hates the Church that Jesus founded, just as He said it would (John 15:18). It reviles her doctrines, mocks her moral teachings and invents lies about her history. In every age, but especially in our modern day, historians and political powers have distorted the facts about her past (or just made up novel falsehoods from scratch) to make the Church, and the civilization it fostered, seem corrupt, backward, or simply evil.

Overview


The world hates the Church that Jesus founded, just as He said it would (John 15:18). It reviles her doctrines, mocks her moral teachings and invents lies about her history. In every age, but especially in our modern day, historians and political powers have distorted the facts about her past (or just made up novel falsehoods from scratch) to make the Church, and the civilization it fostered, seem corrupt, backward, or simply evil.

In Seven Lies about Catholic History, Diane Moczar (Islam at the Gates) tackles the most infamous and prevalent historical myths about the Church popular legends that you encounter everywhere from textbooks to T.V. and reveals the real truth about them. She explains how they got started and why they're still around, and best of all, she gives you the facts and the arguments you need to set the record straight about The Inquisition: how it was not a bloodthirsty institution but a merciful (and necessary) one, Galileo's trial: why moderns invented a myth around it to make science appear incompatible with the Catholic faith (it's not), The Reformation: why the 16th-century Church was not totally corrupt (as even some Catholics wrongly believe), and how the reformers made things worse for everybody and other lies that the world uses to attack and discredit the Faith.

Written in a brisk style that's fun and easy to read, Seven Lies about Catholic History provides the lessons that every Catholic needs in order to defend and explain not just apologize for the Church's rich and complex history.

    This book provides a well-documented analysis of seven commonly

    This book provides a well-documented analysis of seven commonly accepted canards about the Catholic Church and completely dispels them by means of historical truth.  The author is thorough in explaining the false assumptions that have come to be regarded as facts and then gives the true story behind the myths.  Very readable and excellent education for someone seeking the truth about these charges against the Church.

    Informative and concise treatment regarding misconceptions of Catholic history

    I really enjoyed the book and the clarifications author made regarding commonly held misconceptions of Catholic history. I was a Protestant for 51 years that converted to Catholicism 6 years ago. I wish the author had simply presented the facts because at times she appeared to be sarcastic in talking about those who have made unjustified accusations against Catholicism. I also believe she downplayed some of the abuses of the Catholic church that led to the reformation. Had the Catholic church had the courage to reform itself the reformation would not have happened.

    Every Catholic should read this.

    This is one book every Catholic should read, even those recalcitrant Catholics out there who hold on "in name only". It is well written and a quick read, vital for busy lives, and vital for Catholics.
