This is without doubt a must have book. The photographs are breathtaking and the narrative supports them well. This is a unique insight into some of the more private areas of the Vatican as well as some of the more well known. It is now a few years since its publication, but that doesnt detract from its impact. Go, read and be inspired!

4.0 out of 5 stars a journey through faithful photos 3 Oct 2010
By Sus
For those who wish to have a first glimpse and a "guided tour" around the venue of the Catholic Headquarters in Rome, this book is truly excellent. One marvels at the many beautiful photos taken inside as well as outside the Vatican and Sct. Peter's Church and you truly get a sense, not only of history and many centuries of dedication within this religious framework, but also of the high quality skill and inner focus of the photographers who have taken these wonderful photos.

I was disappointed with my own photos taken inside the Vatican, so the gorgeous pictures in this book are great. The condition of the book is excellent and at a very good price. I'm very happy!
