Overview

2010 Reprint of 1916 Edition. This book was initially published in 1853 as a pamphlet, then greatly revised and expanded and released as a book in 1858 (THE TWO BABYLONS: or The Papal Worship Proved to be The Worship of Nimrod and his Wife). He claimed the Roman Catholic Church was a Babylonian mystery cult, and pagan, whereas Protestants worshipped the true Jesus and the true God. He contended that Roman Catholic religious practices are actually pagan practices grafted onto true Christianity during the reign of Constantine. This edition reprints the book edition, not the shorter pamphlet.

The Two Babylons is a book that must be read with great care. The author was vehemently Protestant in his approach. This prejudice notwithstanding, he documents many of the permutations of mythical persons and connects them with Biblical figures in ways not easy to dispute. The value of this book lies in its use by researchers. Many books of this nature are no longer in print. Once scholars tag a book as inaccurate, the good is often thrown out with the bad. Hislop ventures into territory better left alone towards the end of the book severely damaging his own credibility. His careful documentation of sources in the rest of the book wins the day, however, and makes it gripping reading for newcomers to the greater Mysteries. Well worth the money.

The source of evidence on history this book presents, is simply an amazing source of information everyone should learn. By reading this book, there's no doubt the eyes of many deceived people would be opened. The editions of this book should no be stopped, it should be taught as a valuable source of history for everybody.

This book exposes the origin of church doctrine as being pagan in origin. Matthew 15:9, 7:22,23

How anybody can take this garbage seriously is beyond me. And for the holier-than-thou types who've given this trash high ratings, Protestantism is a watered down version of Catholicism. You're condemning your own spiritual roots when you condemn the Church from which your religion split.

This book shows an excellent history of the Catholic church, explaining the where the many (and sometimes confusing) Catholic traditions came from. An eye-opening read!

Well documented and stragihtforward. History well researched. Very good for church history. What the Vatican does not want to tell, you can find it here.
