Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An illuminating exposé of Opus Dei, the secretive sect operating at the heart of the Roman Catholic Church
 
To the outside world, Opus Dei claims that its only goal is "to remind all people that they are called to holiness, especially through work and ordinary life." But with an elite membership of 90,000 and influences reaching around the globe, Opus Dei has far greater potential power than its leaders are willing to reveal.
 
Investigative journalist Robert Hutchison charts the seemingly unstoppable growth of this shadow government behind the Vatican. Hutchison demonstrates how Opus Dei has forged an unholy alliance with the Mafia, secular powerbrokers, and highly placed prelates, with the result that Christian values are being threatened by the malign influences of power politics and big money.
 
In this updated edition, Hutchison sheds light on the future of Opus Dei, its ties to the new pope, and the details of its preparations for what the organization regards as Christendom's inevitable showdown with radical Islam.

Synopsis:

An explosive expose of one of the most powerful and secretive sects operating within the Roman Catholic Church-Opus Dei.

This book reveals that Opus Dei:

-Has become the Catholic Church's paramount financial power

-Influences its members through a combination of secret rites and insistence on absolute obedience

-Uses a strategy of discretion to cloud its real intentions

-Aims to prepare Christendom for the next crusade against Islam
