Scandal of Scandals: New Book debunks common misconceptions about Christianity

“The Scandal of the Scandals: The Secret History of Christianity” by Manfred Lütz is a book for everyone to know the real history of the Church.

Newsdesk (Aug 31, 2020 10:57 am, Gaudium Press) On this new book,  “The Scandal of the Scandals: The Secret History of Christianity” author Manfred Lütz takes a very comprehensive voyage into some of the darkest and most disputed periods of the History of Christianity: the Crusades, the Inquisition, the witch hunts, Protestant and Catholic missions, the sex abuse scandal and much more. “You can see, as a Christian, the Church history as the history of salvation, and this is important to see, ” he explains.
Lütz hopes his work will be a tool for both Christians and non-Christians, and helping them separate fact from myth. As Lütz explains, “For me it was important that the most known historians in Germany had proofread the book, that all the facts are correc; but also my hairdresser, so that the book is understandable; because I think one difficulty is that the language of theologians often is not understandable, and that’s a problem. So this is a book for everyone to know the real history of Christianity.”
A theologian himself, Lütz claims that even our often distorted perception of the history of Christianity can itself be full of obstacles. Scandal, we are reminded, derives from the Greek word meaning precisely “stumbling block.” The author notes that our often distorted perception of the history of Christianity can itself be a stumbling block.
“For example, it was a scandal that Christians killed heretics. But did you know that for the first thousand years, Christianity was the only great religion that did not kill heretics?” – he asks.
As Rome Reports informs, with “The Scandal of the Scandals: The Secret History of Christianity,” Lütz presents a more complete picture of factual events in order to debunk common misconceptions contributing to inaccurate perceptions of history as a whole.
Not an easy task. Or, one may say, quite a scandal.
