A must to clear up Catholic misconceptions

by Sylvia Scott on 4/20/2009

The Catholic Press Association included this book among the top three new books in Church History in 2007, and it is definitely a worthwhile read. Rather than a simple survey of church history, it offers a refreshingly objective treatment of some key areas in the history of the Catholic Church, and how they have often been misperceived. Topics include early relations between Christianity and Islam, the Crusades, the Inquisition, Martin Luther and the Catholic Church, 16th century missions and their impact on indigenous cultures, the Galileo affair, and Pope Pius XII and the Holocaust. Clearly and concisely written, the deceptively brief text offers a wealth of factual information and insights, and draws on a wide spectrum of sources, both primary and secondary.
