Review

The enemy has been very busy, since he got kicked out of the Garden and out of Heaven.

How better to prevent mankind from entering Heaven than to pervert the Word of God through mixing holy and unholy doctrines?

After reading this book and checking out the reliability of the information it contains, I have changed many of my traditions and religious beliefs. It is truly frightening to see how our eyes are blinded by the accepted religious traditions and we do things that are truly unacceptable to our Creator. I found the numerous descriptions of the origins of our religious icons to be fascinating and enlightening. Any person who is truly interested in pure, clean worship of our Creator MUST read this book.

A Kid's Review on February 11, 2008
Format: Paperback
I read this book and found that it helped piece together a huge part of a very complicated puzzle. Not an easy read but definately a wealth of information. I think the author retracted for reasons other than poor research methods. I think he retracted his work for the same reasons many other controversial books are pulled from publication. I was born and raised Catholic and to this day the priests still wear the attire worn by Ancient Dagon Priests. The Pope also uses the same instruments used by Ancient Pagan Priests affiliated with Babylonian Religion. There are many more similarities that are just too hard to ignore. I know it's a tough pill to swallow when you've been spoon fed this nonsense for years but it's pretty obvious. Catholics eat fish on Friday in honor of Dagon (Pagan Fish God). I mean folks if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it just might be......... you guessed it. Let's use some common sense, remember common sense????

There's no doubt about it this book is a difficult read. However, with a little persistence you too can get through this book. This book is certainly controversial, especially in our politically correct society where it is a no-no to criticize anyone or anyone's beliefs. This book compares Roman Catholicism with ancient Pagan Beliefs (primarily Babylonian and Egyptian). It's true you cannot make a direct connection of the two belief systems but the similarities are definitely there for anyone with an OPEN mind to see. Any visitor to the Vatican can see the pagan symbology staring them straight in the face. However, most people would rather bury their heads in the sand than confront the pagan origins of many of today's so-called christian traditions. They fail to consider that if the Bible was their ONLY source for religion, then Christmas, Easter, Sunday Worship, the Trinity, Halloween, and Lent would fall by the wayside since these are not of Biblical origin but man-made traditions and beliefs. Truth is the beginning of knowledge. I would rate this book 5 stars if it were easier to read.

All the images have been removed from the original publication. Without the images, you can't see what's being described. The images hold the key to following Babylon through to the Roman Catholic Church as well as through to the Muslim anti-Christ system. BRING BACK THE IMAGES!

Mr. Hislop's Two Babylons has been resourceful ammunition for an anti ROMAN catholic doctrine (not Ante-Nicene "catholicism, which means "universal"[i.e. "pre-Constantinian council and opinions//c.a. 325 A.D.]). He has 'exposed' the major parts of Mary and Saint worship. He has shown the picture-type of the pope from the pope's pagan origins. He has shown that the Roman Catholicism is absolutely ANTITHETICAL to the Bible. I couldn't agree more. There are a few discrepencies found, but, nothing that would detur me from saying that this is probably the greatest polemic against the ROMAN catholic church ever made. And, interestingly enough, I believe that Hislop was trying to show the facts and not make a diatribe. SO, Roman Catholics, please read this book, if you really do, you will change your religion.

Format: Paperback
The thesis of this book is that Roman Catholicism is--to use the words of the author--"baptised paganism". The author states that the Roman Catholic Church, with its doctrines, organization, and practices, is simply a continuation of the ancient Babylonian "Mystery" religion built around the worship of Nimrod, his wife Semiramis, and the child Tammuz. He further states that the prophetic "Whore of Babylon" described in Revelation 17 and 18 is none other than the great false church of the Tribulation: the Roman Catholic Church. The thesis is startling, provocative, and, in my opinion, correct.
However, the author's scientific standard of research leaves much to be desired. For proof of his thesis he offers some hard facts, many more inferences, and lots of pure speculation. The voluminous footnotes do not go far in hiding the poor research standards. In the end, I believe a modern author ought to rewrite this book in the light of the most recent archaeology. The thesis deserves a better standard of scholarship.
The writing style is typical 19th century verbosity. The author writes with an intense conversational tone, as if he is urging the reader to agree immediately with his thesis. He would have spent his energies better writing with a more direct, dispassionate, and orderly style.
In the end, this book is well worth the price for those who are looking for the origins of Romanism and wonder why the Catholic practices are so distant from Biblical Christianity. Where do "popes", Mary-worship, confessionals, crossing oneself and the like come from? From ancient Babylon and her Mystery religion! After reading this book, you will never read Revelation 17:5 the same again.
