We have a Pope!

  • Oct 19, 2009
This is a quite comprehensive review of the men who have held the papacy from almost the beginning of the Church. It's very well-written and quite easy to understand. Given the vast period of time (almost 2000 years) with which the author has to deal, he has been able to give the reader a lucid account of the good, the bad and the ugly.

My only quibble is that, at times, the book wanders back and forth about certain popes and events, and that can get a bit disconcerting. Other than that, I found this book very interesting and informative, and would recommend it to anyone interested in church history, and the men in charge.

What did you think of this review?
