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'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.

Refuting Modern Lies

This book helps to clear up some gross myths that are taught in schools to impressionable young people, who don’t know any better.

Matthew Becker
Excellent and concise intro

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.

Frank Jozefczak
A great beginner's guide to Catholic history and lies told about it

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!
