Format: Hardcover
Full of interesting facts, but the poor grammar and continuity of events makes for a poor read. The books style and layout would be more suited to age 14+!

It just keeps adding up..... 26 July 2010
By Trevor Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you are interested in getting down to brass tax on the popes, this book is for you. If you are a closed minded person, this book is not for you. The atrocities of the Catholic Church reach far and wide to the individual who seeks those answers. But the person who doesn't want the truth, or wants to only read bias books that paint a rosy history this is not for you. Also see, "Dark Side of Christian History" by Helen Ellerbe. The Popes reads alot like a text book, it is written in a format that is very easy to read with wonderful picture illustration that help the reader understand. Other books that will help in this field see: Michael Tsarion (all works). Welcome to the Age of Information, where the truth cannot hide anymore!

Very Informative 20 Jun. 2011
By Artemisia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is very interesting, and the illustrations are impeccable. While not particularly cheerful, this is a good book and contains a wealth of information about the many corrupt popes and the many and varied atrocities that they have perpetrated. Overall, a good read.

At last a truthful book. This is an unbiased account of the Vatican and the popes throughout the centuries. Wonderful in all aspects.

Very good reading. 7 July 2014
By Helen Sue Munro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An excellent book about a church which has obviously been corrupt for centuries, and has managed to get away with it for that long!
This book should be compulsory reading for all those who don't believe what is now 'coming out' about the Catholic church.

Only read a few pages but....... 25 April 2014
By J. S. Overholser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I know there have been evil popes ands scandals but that being said I only got to page 10 before I started to do some research on things the author presented as facts. Specifically she said pope Stephen IX was mutilated and had his tounge and eyes, lips, ect removed and was never to show his face again in public. I found zero conformation of any of this in my research. Don't believe me just google his name. I found very scant information on this pope let alone such a specific incident. I was looking forward to reading this book as I have read other histories of the popes but I don't know if I can continue to read this if the information is going to be suspect. I wish she would have backed up her sources of information.
