“…making phony claims of scholarship, Brown-s book infects readers with a virulent hostility toward Catholicism. Dozens of occult history books, conveniently cross-linked by Amazon.com, are following in its wake.

While Brown-s assault on the Catholic Church may be a backhanded compliment, it-s one we would have happily done without.”
