Here are just a few that I have:

What went wrong with Vatican II by Ralph M. Mcinerny

Creed or Chaos? by Dorothy L. Sayers

Is it the Same Church? by F.J. Sheed

Trojan Horse in the City of God by Dietrich von Hildebrand

The Ratzinger Report interviewed Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger

The Battle for the American Church by George A Kelly

The Battle for the American Church Revisited by George A Kelly

Turmoil and Truth by Philip Trower

Each of these books gives a great insight into what happened to the Catholic Church in the last several decades in order to bring about the Catholic identity crisis that still is destroying Catholics worldwide. For many decades now there is widespread division among many Catholic entities and more Catholics need to wake up to the unchecked neoliberal heresy that has and is destroying Catholic unity from within the Catholic Church. Get informed and Stand Up and Defend the True Faith.

Please add any other books that you believe would be helpful for people to expose and refute neoliberal "Catholicism" or Modernism.

Veritas Deo Gratias

The foundational sources to refute all errors would be Catechism of the Catholic Church and Ignatius Bible

campusdan, I think there have been earlier threads where it has been pointed out that the catechism is a useful teaching aid, a summary, a reference, rather than a "foundational source". The foundational source is the tradition of the Church which is made up of thousands of documents, decrees, encyclicals, councils, etc. The catechism cites these truly foundational documents and refers us to them if we want to better understand Church teaching.

I'm wondering why you say the Ignatius Bible is foundational. Is there some encyclical or other authoritative Church teaching which states that this version is more "foundational" than other Catholic versions of the bible? I believe that the Jerusalem Bible, for example, has been approved by most of the bishops' conferences in the English-speaking world. I grew up with the Douay–Rheims Bible. The English is now outdated, but do you consider that old Catholic favourite as less foundational than the Ignatius version?

I'm not sure what you mean by "the unchecked neoliberal heresy that has and is destroying Catholic unity from within the Catholic Church". That there is some disagreement by a few people at the two extreme "wings" of the Church is true and probably always has been, but I don't see a "Catholic identity crisis that is destroying Catholics worldwide". Indeed under the current pope I see the opposite. But then I don't live in the USA!

I would add that a key foundational source to read would actually be the documents of Vatican II. One also might want to read (as a secondary source) a good commentary on the Council, eg Commentary on the Documents of Vatican II edited by Herbert Vorgrimler.

I would also recommend the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church from the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. Just like the catechism, it sets out a broad range of Catholic doctrine and cites the original foundational documents. It's a book I refer to regularly, as I do the Vatican II documents.

Veritas Deo Gratias

What is "Veritas Deo Gratias" supposed to mean? Literally it's "Truth (is) Thanks to God" or perhaps "Truth to God (is) Thanks." It doesn't appear anyone has used this odd motto before. Are you trying to say "True Thanks to God"? That would require an adjectival form.
