Publisher's Summary

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 TV - 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.

This book provides the lessons that every Catholic needs in order to defend and explain - not just apologize for - the Church's rich and complex history.

    "Wow, well read!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Heard some of the same myths that were hard to believe, now understand.


    What about Kevin Spalding’s performance did you like?

    Enjoyed listening to his voice. Made me feel that we were talking to each other.

    "brilliant!"

    this book is a must read for every Catholic. It changes your view on not just Catholic history, but also history in general. I wish this material would be taught in schools. Even the views of non Catholics can be changed.

    "A truly enlightening review of Catholic historical myths"

    Very informative and readable. The factual basis was impressive. The author gives a balanced perspective and sticks with facts while avoiding mere opinions in dealing with history.

    "Great insight into Historical truth"

    It was very engaging and reliable. It gives extensive analysis on the myths about the Catholic church, which are perpetrated by many people who are ignorant as to the true nature of Catholic history.

    "Excellently written"

    I'm have to apologize for not reading this sooner. I had known of them book for some time, but for some reason only read it recently. This is a well-researched work, and equally as well written. Easy to listen to, and fascinating.

    "excellent read"

    Excellent read for the serious student. The author deftly demolishes the ohhhh so tiring myths concerning several topics such as the myths of the Inquisition, the myths of the Crusades, the myths of the persecution of Galileo, the myth of church vs science, and the myth of church versus women.

    Certainly a book that will be hated by the political left whose entire stance against the Catholic Church relies on the propagation of baseless myths.

    "every catholic should listen"

    this is a book that every Catholic in this day and age should listen to if not just for the sake of feeling better about your religion but also for the sake of dispelling the myths that are still too prevalent in today's age
