Item Description...
In an uncompromisingly honest examination, Keith D. Lewis looks at the crusades, the Spanish inquisition, Pope Urban's battle with Galileo, and other dark periods in the Catholic church's history to dispel denial and bring reconciliation, clarity, and healing.

Publishers Description
The darkest chapters of Catholic history usually evoke either denial or uninformed prejudice. But under the leadership of visionaries such as Pope John Paul II, a new way of understanding history is emerging - reconciliation and hope come not from ignoring history, but from a close examination of the forgotten facts, with clues to their meaning for life today. In The Catholic Church in History, Keith Lewis helps us reexamine what really happened in these controversial events, and shows us how Catholic faith offers tools for addressing mistakes and moving forward.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A timely historical review of current state of affairs  Apr 7, 2007
Lewis presents in his book, "The Catholic Church in History - Legend and Reality" a carefully crafted understanding of historical situations which reflect modern state of affairs. Evangelization of the New World, Islamic and Christian relations, Science and Faith, among other topics are what Lewis presents in this historical work. Through Lewis' research the reader is able to come to fuller understand of history and thereby better deal with present dilemmas facing our world.

According to Lewis, "The work of the church historian in this regard must above all else be bound by a solemn commitment to `patient, honest, scholarly reconstruction, free from confessional or ideological prejudices, regarding both the accusations brought against her and the wrong she has suffered.'" (Introduction, 3) Lewis completes this monumental task while maintaining the interest of the reader.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in bringing hope to our modern state of affairs. In knowing the past we are in a better position in dealing with the present and at the same time we can work for a brighter future.
Not a Catholic interpretation!  Jan 8, 2007
This book is researched from primarily (if not entirely) Protestant sources. It is not an orthodox Catholic view nor is it researched with authentically Catholic sources such as the church fathers, saints etc. I cannot recommend it.
