Customer Review

on June 26, 2010
I really expected more from a book presented as "a careful examination of historical evidence." There was historical evidence a plenty, and that is a real service. But there were also distracting (and annoyingly frequent) predictions, usually prefaced with "when in the future women will be ordained priests and deacons in the Catholic Church..." I found this intrusive, as if the author couldn't resist showing his own hand (and his smirking face) now and again. This is going beyond "a careful examination of historical evidence" and it diminished the book's value to such a degree that I only forced myself to finish it, and even then, I found myself wondering just how trustworthy its presentation of history was. So much confidence in one's prophetic abilities is out of place in a study of history.
