Although we never hear the word �popery� today, it seems to be used in the same fashion as �thievery� or �thuggery.� The author wastes no time in sharing his knowledge of the various schemes, deceptions, and shortcomings of the Roman Catholic faith and the pope in general. There�s an endless supply of hypocrisy, lies, and double-dealing dirt that�s been exposed for your enjoyment. After Christianity began it took many centuries before the supremacy of the pope was accepted�in the late 6th Century. Van Dyke says once popery began, Christianity was never the same again. This book provides surprising information from an alternative point of view on exactly how the Vatican came to be what it is today.
