Patrick Madrid Answers to 30 Arguments that Mythed the Mark

"As a Protestant minister, I sincerely believed and enthusiastically taught almost all the papal fictions which this book so deftly unmasks.  In a very readable style, it catalogs and refutes those fictions charitably and completely.  Had it been available when I first began to be drawn to the Church, my journey ho

Recommends it for: anyone that wants to know the truth about the Catholic Church
Recommended to Laine by: Tim Staples
written by a convert and an apologist. It is a very readable book. There was only one chapter "Peter Syndrome" that is difficult to read.
anyone that wants a concise mythbuster about 33 issues of the Church then they should read this book

Excellent apologetic work. Ranging from 2 or 3 pages to 10 or 15 for each "Pope Fiction" easily digestible bites for the casual reader. Well defended with historical sources and actual papal documents. Much of the defense is as the old quote goes about hating what you think the Church is versus not really when you know what the Church really is. This is really well written and well developed. A sense of humor and the sacred mixed together.

Of course, this is not fiction, but an apologetic work to set the record straight on the papacy. I learned quite a lot.
