Description
 
In Seven Lies about Catholic History, Diane Moczar, author of, 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
  • 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. 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.

    Thoroughly familiar with the threadbare "Church-as-Enemy-of-mankind" routine, Diane Moczar proves that Catholics in fact hold the historical high ground.

    Along the way, this breezy excursion sparkles with sidelights on medieval medicine, the medieval woman, usury, the Albigensian heresy, monarchy, the Byzantine Empire, the devastation caused by Protestantism, and many more topics.

    Moreover, Dr. Moczar also analyzes underlying philosophies, showing how God Himself is the real target of anti-Catholic historical lies-and explaining how to answer those lies.

    The reader will meet historians both good and bad; will learn of secular authors who do not suffer from the prevailing anti-Catholic bias; and will find suggested resources for further study.

    Written in a brisk style that is fast–paced, 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 does more than defend the Church; it also awakens Catholics to their true and fascinating history. It will entertain and educate - and it will give a new appreciation for the wisdom and good works of God's Church throughout the ages.
