Description



Book Synopsis



Back by popular demand, the bestselling Politically Incorrect Guides provide an unvarnished, unapologetic overview of controversial topics every American should understand. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Catholicism refutes misrepresentations and misconceptions about the Catholic Church and separates rumor from truth when it comes to Catholic traditions, faith, and controversial leaders.



Review Quotes





"The Politically Incorrect Guide(R) to Catholicism envelops its deep learning in a breezy Chestertonian style that entertains as it informs. It offers a wry combination of the hilarious and the profound: truth delivered with razor wit. As a result, it is compulsively readable. Peppered throughout the text are recommendations of books 'You're Not Supposed to Read.' This nervy book now joins that honor roll. Read it."
-- Robert Reilly, former director, Voice of America, and author of The Closing of the Muslim Mind and Making Gay Okay

"John Zmirak is so brilliant, effervescent, and indefatigably entertaining that I'm much too embarrassed to mention it publicly."
-- Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer and If You Can Keep It: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty

"John Zmirak has a deeply informed and accurate understanding of the real political and economic implications of the Catholic Faith, conveyed in gracious and highly readable language with more than a dash of healing humor. This book is the antidote to the leftist distortions of the Church that are all too ubiquitous today."
-- The Honorable Faith Whittlesey, former U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland

"John Zmirak has written an entertaining and enlightening book that will help you to think about Catholicism in ways you may not expect. His insights challenge conventional wisdom. Whether you come to agree or not with his at times provocative diagnoses of and remedies for the problems in the Church, reading this book will help you understand what is at stake."
-- The Reverend Gerald E. Murray, J.C.D., pastor, Holy Family Church, New York, New York

"John Zmirak is the most articulate and learned defender of real Catholic social teaching of his generation. For decades, he has courageously spoken out for the life of the unborn, for the freedom of faith and families, and for the integrity of the Faith. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Catholicism should serve as a vital textbook in classrooms of Catholic colleges--though of course, it probably won't!"
-- Jason Scott Jones, producer, Crescendo, co-executive producer, Bella

"This book will help you learn a great deal about that greatly misunderstood subject: Catholicism. What's more, you'll laugh a great deal--something that is thoroughly Catholic!"
--Samuel Gregg, research director, Acton Institute

"John Zmirak is a joyful scandal, not scandal in the sense of leading anyone astray, but in the sense of telling the truth, which is always a scandal to modern ears. His new book is a wild and bumpy ride through Church teaching as it is--has been--will be, with immense dollops of orthodoxy's smoky incense and utterly bereft of heterodoxy's uncertain bells and whistles. Oh, and plenty of belly-laughs to boot."
-- Austin Ruse, author of The Littlest Suffering Souls and president of The Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute at the United Nations
