Overview

Are you missing half the story about the last days? Virtually all attention these days is focused on the coming Antichrist--but he is only half the story. Many people are amazed to discover in Revelation 17 that there is also another mysterious character at the heart of prophecy--a woman who rides the beast.

Who is this woman? Tradition says she is connected with the church of Rome. But isn't such a view outdated? After all, today's Vatican is eager to join hands with Protestants worldwide. "The Catholic church has changed" is what we hear.

Or has it? In A Woman Rides the Beast, prophecy expert Dave Hunt sifts through biblical truth and global events to present a well-defined portrait of the woman and her powerful place in the Antichrist's future empire. Eight remarkable clues in Revelation 17 and 18 prove the woman's identity beyond any reasonable doubt.

A provocative account of what the Bible tells us is to come.

    Important, good scholarship, must read, totally informative even to one who is prophecy active

    This book should be read and re-read. It has outstanding research, important and relevant information to all interested in last day prophecy. The scholarship relevant to so-called 'Mother Church' is a must for all: Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish. I have purchased many copies for many people, friends and strangers as I would call this required reading. And most enjoyable if one needs and appreciates the truth.

    TRUTH OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC RELIGION

    Wonderfully written. These are historical facts and raw truth about the Roman Catholic Church. If you are RC I highly recommend you read this book with an open mind. If you are a born again Christian and belive Roman Catholics are saved also, read this book. Mat 7:21, Mat 25:11, Luke 6:46 Luke 13:25. Mat 7:22,23 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    Poor scholarship dupes the un-educated

    Hunt's book is full of misquotes, errors and out right lies. I can only guess at his motives, but he seems to be blinded by his personal hatred for the Catholic Church. I could respect his position if he would simply tell the truth. Reading Hunt is like going to Osama bin Laden and asking him for an opinion of the United States. Would you really expect an unbiased and truthful answer?

    Should be a minus rating (-5 stars)

    People, asking Dave Hunt to explain Catholism is akin to asking (a Nazi to explain Judaism! or asking a Klansman to explain the black american experience!) for a much more accurate read, 'Catholism vs. Fundamentalism' by Karl Keating or 'Why I'm Catholic' by Gary Wills.

    Study, Compare, Review and Study Again

    I hated History when I was in school, but this I could not put down!!!I do hope that all my friends will read this. I beleive he has the facts down pretty good. I do compare to other writers and historians and find this to be as plain as it gets. Please come out from among the Catholic Religion and study to show yourself approved and understanding of Gods Word!!!Not the Popes, No matter how many books he has written.

    Misconceptions

    Common misconceptions. People always have misconceptions about Catholics. It saddens our Lord when we are seperated by such hate for each other & not coming together as a body of Christ. This book is discouraging & not encouraging at all, which is what we are meant to do -- encourage each other towards Christ.

    The truth is in there

    If you thought that the Roman Catholic church was just another Christian denomination, well, you're in for a shock. Dave Hunt exposes the bloody history of the Roman Catholic church for all to see. He lays the facts out on the table. What you do with those facts is up to you. Truth is truth, my friends, and some will choose to be blind to it.

    So what's the point?

    I don't understand some of the reviews others have written, some say 'bigotry', others 'Poor scholarship...personal hatred for the Catholic Church'. Hunt presents history, and regardless of personal bias, history is facts. What you do with those facts is totally up to you. I face different emotions when I read about the history of the Catholic Church, and I can't help but be disgusted towards those whom knowing the truth decide to look away and hide it from those trusted under their care. Hunt's argument and message is not one of hate or catholic bashing (though reasons abound as some of us are eyewitness to stoning, protestant bashing, and persecution by catholics by order of the Catholic priest while growing up in El Salvador, Central America); Hunt's point is that, given the history and deeds of the Catholic Church, it conforms to that woman riding the beast as described by John in Rev. 17. This book is a must have to those seeking the truth.

    This book amazed me & rekindled my faith to a blaze!

    My first and foremost comment, specifically to Catholics and Catholic apologists is that I (and I believe Dave Hunt does) love you, just as Jesus truly does. I do not wish to write an attacking article, but one of loving truth, which as we all know, sometimes is not what we want or expect to hear. This book requires you to be open to a truth that is not happy-joyful ¿ in fact, it¿s tragic. ------- I bought a second copy of this book to share with friends. If you have ever dealt with religious 'Christianity' and it discouraged you, look no further. Dave Hunt goes into the crucial and stunning details of Roman Catholicism¿s false doctrines and power-hungry tactics. It could perhaps sell as a modern thriller, with hit elements like ¿Lies, illegitimate sex, greed, backstabbing, and fear-mongering.¿ Although I was shocked and sceptical at first, I had to conclude that Jesus¿ mission had no place in Catholicism, and vice-versa. As Dave points out, if you want to find real Christianity, look at the Bible-believing commoners who essentially loved everyone and rejoiced daily in their villages about the God they served, who were being persecuted by the founders of Catholicism in the late 300¿s AD (See chapt. 17 p. 255 & chapt. 22). ------- This book rekindled my faith, and in fact it brought it to a blazing inferno of love for the Lord. Read this book, and come away knowing that: ------- Jesus said to the people who believed in him, 'You are truly my disciples if you keep obeying my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.' ¿¿But we are descendants of Abraham,' they said. 'We have never been slaves to anyone on earth. What do you mean, `set free'?' Jesus replied, 'I assure you that everyone who sins is a slave of sin.¿ (John 8) ------- And He declared to the Samaritan woman: 'Believe me, the time is coming when it will no longer matter whether you worship the Father here or in Jerusalem. You Samaritans know so little about the one you worship, while we Jews know all about him, for salvation comes through the Jews. But the time is coming and is already here when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for anyone who will worship him that way. For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.' (John 4) ------- God bless your search for the Truth, I pray this book assists you as it did me! ------- Dan

    This is a must read. I am half way through the book and don't want to put it down. If you are Catholic I suggest getting a copy and have an open mind;looking back on history if you must do so. We are in the last days.The world, in the shape it's in should tell even an unbeliever this. Take the time and do your homework look up Hunt's references you owe it to yourselves.

    I recommend this book

    The early chapters are well researched and eye opening. I found the book very revealing until the last several chapters which seemed lost to me. I do not share all the doctrinal views the author which fill those chapters.

    Totally One sided:misrepresent Caholic beliefs

    All institutions, especially those claiming an authority to guide and direct the consciences of persons, need criticism from both its members and possibly even more so those outside it. There is no gainsaying that the Catholic Church could have used a greater dose of oversight during those periods, especially from about 1000 to 1500 AD where its power was extensive and its leadership presumed itself above reproach. Had the lower clergy and the laity been more insistent on church orthodoxy and orthopraxy being followed on all levels, especially the highest one where the most obvious examples should be set, many of the tragic events that have ensued in the last 500 years and come to scandalize all of Christianity to the rest of the world could well have been avoided. There is however a vast difference between legitimate and respectful criticism of an institution and demonizing it as David Hunt does-- and it is this latter factor which my critique seeks to address. While essentially a diatribe, Mr. Hunt's descriptions of the Catholic Church do not go to the scurrilous extremes as have some hatchet jobs of pure fiction supposedly written by nuns or priests describing sexual orgies facilitated by tunnels between convent and rectory, lined with the decomposing bodies of babies murdered at birth so as hide these reprehensible events.
    The Catholic Church has (and continues) to feed more of the hungry, clothed the maked, house the homeless and educate from elementary to the university level than does any other religious denomination. If it is demonic, then it is as obvious a case of a house divided as one can find. Lastly, if Hunt is correct, then it makes of Christianity one of the greatest religious failures on record.

    A Woman Rides the Beast

    Folks, Dave Hunt is a false teacher that doesn't want you to know about REV. 12, Lk 1:28, Lk 1:48, Mtt 16:18-19, Heb 13:17, 1 Tim 3:15. 'Many people are quick to try and hold the RCC up to somekind of a standard that they aren't even willing to hold themselves up to.' G.K. Chesterton

    Pope

    My concern is not hate for the Catholics, nor do I think the book was written because of hate. Go to your dictionary and look up the word pope. In latin it means papa or father. My bible tells me to call only one father, and that one is God! Get past that one if you can.

    Disappointed2

    I could have saved my money by just reading the summary on B&N web site. The author did very little to say much more than that. I was fairly interested until about half-way through the book when the author seemed to be unable to move past proving his point that the catholic church has been and still is 'unchristian'. I found no reason to dispute any of his sources but grew weary and found myself skipping through the paragraphs and finally chapters to find something worth reading. I gave up and decided he had said all he was going to say and the book was devoted to backing that up. I didn't even feel it was worth passing on and threw the book away.

    Outstanding and incredibly accurate

    Extremely accurate. Many of the facts are confirmed by such people as ex-Jesuit Priest, Alberto Riviera, and ex-Priest, Chiniquy. Never Have I read such an outstanding book. Those who call it revisionist and untrue have absolutely no idea what is really going on.

    Disappointed

    This book is well organized and has attempted at siting sources--some of these are even Catholic. However, I was not convinced that the author truely understands the orthodoxy and orthopraxis of Catholic liturgy. I would suggest being critical of the author's criticisms.

    Have only read the first chapter, but am astounded. I'd heard of some of the Catholic church's scandalous behavior in the past, but had never read a compiled list of some of its sins.

    I am also surprised by some of the negative reviews, as the reviewers tend to ignore the substance of the author's assertion. The pope lives like a king, and surely must remind us of the scribes and Pharisees, with all of his pomp and circumstance. Does he not exalt himself, accepting the deferential kisses of cardinals, bishops, and worshippers alike? Ignoring any evidence the author has presented, for me it is enough that the Church of Rome has amassed an absurd amount of wealth, and its leadership lives like royalty, to rid me of any notion that they serve the people as Jesus did.
