How do Catholics deal with the darkest chapters in their history, such as the Holocaust, the Inquisition, and the Crusades? In The Catholic Church in History by Keith D. Lewis the author shows ways for Catholics to use their own tradition for forgiveness and reconciliation.
The darkest chapters of Catholic history usually evoke either denial or uninformed prejudice. The Catholic Church in History by Keith D. Lewis reveals the leadership of visionaries such as Pope John Paul II as a new way of understanding that 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. The Catholic Church in History by Keith D. 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.
