Seven Lies about Catholic History
Publication Date: September 1, 2010
This book helps to clear up some gross myths that are taught in schools to impressionable young people, who don’t know any better.
This book does an excellent job giving a concise "debunking" of the most common lies told about the history of the Church. The seven lies addressed regard: the so-called dark ages, the Church's purported opposition to progress, the crusades, the inquisition(s), the Galileo affair, Church corruption/Protestant "Reformation," and the Church (with Spain) as colonizers. While this book only serves as a quality introduction to these historical topics, Dr. Moczar left a fantastic appendix listing resources for further reading on each subject.
Dr. Diane Moczar does a great job in introducing 7 lies that are highly prevalent today about Catholic history. Each section is given enough time to debunk the lie and give the reader a taste to study the subject themselves. My one complaint is that the book went by really fast, and I wish we could have gotten either more detail, or a few more lies to debunk and learn about. I would have loved for Dr. Moczar to go into more detail about "the dark ages".
Dr. Diane Moczar left a great appendix for those whom wish to learn more, and I recommend anyone interested in learning about Catholic History and hearing the truth about key historical events to get this book!
