Hi CA Community & Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
I’m reading a book that has really gotten me thinking: They Glory of the Crusades by Steve Weidenkopf. Looks like it was published by Catholic Answers. I have found it so far to be a fascinating and exciting read.
In the past I’ve assumed that the Crusades were a dark part of the Church’s history and an example of people’s horrible mistakes, but now I’m considering whether they weren’t really the Will of God & fought by those who truly loved God and neighbor. The book does detail the crimes of the various people involved.
