    Unfaithful

    This book is an awful portrayal of the Church. It is loaded with liberal propaganda. Also, it is not a good history. Out of the 529 pages in the book, the author spends most of those pages on the last 150 years. Church history prior to 1500 is not spoken of at length at all. In addition, he refers to the Vatican's insistence on doctrine and dogma as 'inquisitorial'. He shows no concept that the Vatican's job is to keep people in the right faith and keep the flock from error.

    This book provides an unending supply of ammunition for enemies of Christianity.

    For forty years, I read anti-Christian material that at least does not pretend to be otherwise. I don't doubt that what this book describes for the most part is very factual. It is also a fact that what is hanging on the skeletons of our individual souls are many damnable inequities. He does a splendid job of describing them and omits the edifying motives and results of the struggle men dealt with in bringing the body of Christ to His ultimate and eternal truth.
    If you are looking for excuses to turn away from God, then I recommend this book. If you want to learn the history of the church, then read Augustus, Alphonse, and Rome Sweet Home.
    Peace
