I have been a practicing catholic all my life and that over the past couple of years, I have had problem with the way our local bishop was destroying our diocese, church and local pastor. It has become such a problem that me and my adult children have become lax in attending mass. I heard this author on a radio show interview and found him very interesting. You will be shocked at the amount money that is flowing through the church with no one watching how it is spent, how the leaders of the church have zero tolerance for dissent, or even for any questions to be asked. After reading about 30 pages I said to my wife it will be a miracle if I’m still a catholic after reading this book. It’s not that bad, I will not allow these criminal to rob me of my religion, but I will be vigilant on my contributions to the church, and send my donation to different causes. There is so much information here it is almost drowning, the author lasers in a specific group and after their story is told he brings you back out to see the whole picture then moves you in another direction and lasers you in on another group then back out again. Very good work.

I have not read this book and because of that I can't give it a fair review, but I would advise anyone who does read it to "keep their minds' open, but not so open that their brains' fall out." I don't deny the possibility that there could be corruption within The Church, but I also believe that some people like to twist the truth and exagerate the actual facts. Of course I don't know if this author is one of those people, but I ask you to keep in mind that possibility. Lastly, if you find that you cannot trust The Church because of what you read, try going to the website Catholicanswers . Com to talk to an apologist or another knowledgable person. They could help you figure it out if there is a misunderstanding, or you could give them the push they need to start fixing the problem if there is one.
In short, if you discover the ship is damaged, rather than try to swim, try to fix it.
