Its about time someone stood up for what the Catholic Church truly is and debunks all the misinformation from both ignorant and ill guided sources. It is detailed and useful for the defense of the FAITH!

I can not say enough good things about this book. Every Christian, not just Catholics, should read this book.

Loved it! Thought it was great and couldn't agree more that it's about time someone came to our defense, enough with the anti- Catholic sentiment ! Thank you!!

A one-sided defence of Catholicism on a variety of topics. Hardly objective in its approach, especially it's trivializing of the sexual abuse scandal. Yes there are sentences inserted intermittently about how awful the abuse was, but the vast amount of material here is devoted to how the abuse was portrayed to be worse than it was, that it isn't what the Church is about (true), and priests are no worse than say coaches and others who abuse children. A dose of humility on the subject would bring much more empathy to the church: the church could have and should have done more in confessing to the problem openly and preventing future abuses. That would have been "Right". As for the rest, I appreciate the attempt to throw a lot of Catholic history, Catholic beliefs, and reasons for Catholic observances that go against the current wave of Political Correctness, into one small book. However, be warned, the author's idea of a perfect world is one where everyone is Catholic.

I usually don't agree with Coren's point of view on most topics but that only piques my interest in his writing. I love reading Coren's column in the Sun papers and I was hoping that he'd push all the right buttons to make his book controversial and interesting and I'm disappointed that it isn't. On the plus side, it is a very quick read. He brings out the same assertions that Hitler was an atheist and that pedophile priests are closet homosexuals. I don't agree with either assertion but I wouldn't knock his book down because of it. Coren said that the Crusades were to prevent atrocities done by Muslims on Catholics and to stop the spread of Islam to western Europe and not to convert Muslims to Christianity. Frankly, I was led to believe from my schooling that the Crusades were meant to reclaim the Holy Land for Christianity and as a bonus the Crusaders were allowed to rape, slay the infidels and collect booty as their hearts desired. I guess I was taught wrong. I'm curious as to how Coren lost two jobs because of his religion? That could be a book in itself. I can't in good conscience recommend this book.
