9781934217948: Disorientation: The 13

Every year, thousands of young Catholics leave their homes for higher education at our nation s colleges and universities. Very few realize, however, that from orientation day onward, they will be indoctrinated with a vision of reality that is very different from the values their families hold dear. Sadly, many of our young people will fall prey to one or more of the dominant ideologies engrained in their college education, ideologies that can lead them away from the Church and, ultimately, their faith in God. Students who are not taught how to think critically or who lack the tools needed to sift through the logic of these positions are easily swayed by the smooth sophistry of the intellectual elite.

For this reason, fourteen of the top Catholic writers in America professors, priests, journalists, philosophers, and theologians have come together to dissect the trendy ideas that can lead young Catholics away from the Church. Disorientation is intellectual ammunition for every college student and parent, as it breaks down the history, analyzes the appeal, and debunks the empty promises of such wildly popular errors as:

  • Hedonism Relativism
  • Progressivism
  • Modernism
  • Scientism
  • Fundamentalism
  • Feminism
  • Multiculturalism
  • ...and more.

Edited by John Zmirak (author of The Bad Catholic's Guide to Good Living and editor of Choosing the Right College, this book is guaranteed to get college students thinking hard about what their professors are telling them and what they should really believe.
