Product Description

It seems that 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 is 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 surprisingly small book is too selective in its use of material to be a history in the traditional sense. It sets up seven views, or lies, about Catholicism in order to shoot them down, although it seems consistently to fail in this. Aimed at the teenage market, its stated objective is to allow Catholics to win debates with non-Catholics on Catholic history. This book is not really intended for readers who want to know more about the non-Catholic understanding of the Church, but a reader with strongly held beliefs will find much to like in it.

    If you're a Catholic who is tired of being beaten over the head by atheists, secularists, protestants, ex-Catholics and even - heaven forbid! - other Catholics with the "truths that everyone knows" about the Church that aren't true, this is at long last the book you have been waiting for someone to write. Whether it's the Galileo incident, the utter corruption of the Church at the time of the Reformation, the Church's incompatibility with science, you'll find the facts that undercut the legends in this fast-paced easy read by Diane Moczar. You'll want to own several to pass around.
