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 tackles the most infamous and prevalent historical myths about the Church—popular legends that you encounter everywhere from textbooks to TV—and reveals the real truth behind 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.
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.
