  • Seven Lies About Catholic History
  • Addresses the most infamous and prevalent myths about the Church
  • Provides the lessons that every Catholic needs in order to defend & explain the Church's rich & complex history
  • A well-written, carefully crafted book

The world reviles the Catholic Church's 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 (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. 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.

    At Last A Quick Referemce

    I have often wondered about the Spanish Inquisition and Galileo. Finally, there is a quick reference book about the many lies perpetrated against the Catholic Church.

    Very Good Book

    A very good book, well written and easy to read, like all of Diane Moczar's books. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. A must read for Catholic apologists and Catholics in general.

    Seven lies about catholic history

    I bought this to give my sister who is a fallen away catholic and now I want a copy to keep for myself ! I heard the author talking w/Al Cresta on Ave Maria radio - this sparked my interest in the book. It is well written and covers a vast amount of time/information in precise and yet, not overwhelming manner. Best Uses: Defend my faith, For my own knowlege, Share wfallen away siste; Cons: Keep on hand as reference, Need to reread, Time to digest all info, Too many facts at once; Pros: Easy read, Fact based, Historical perspective

    Good material

    I am glad I got this book.....the best defense against common errors of those who do not know their history is what really happened.

    Great Book

    This book was extremely helpful in combating the lies and deliberate misinformation of Catholic History I have read in years. It is accurate, easy to read and concise. I recommend it to everyone and a copy should be in every Catholic home
