Not only provocative, this report is illuminating and fully accessible to members of the faith and doubters alike * Kirkus Reviews * One closes John Thavis' perceptive study reflecting on the Vatican's challenge: to persist in a secularizing world sometimes fascinated by the pomp and pageantry of St. Peter's-but often hostile or increasingly indifferent to the Church's determined mission to harmonize warring factions and bickering enemies, even if both are on the same Catholic side * New York Journal of Books * In this highly readable memoir of being a journalist at the Vatican, John Thavis follows the conclaves, sex scandals, internal backstabbing and olympian nature of the popes with a sense of comic relief at the caravan passing through his viewfinder -- Jason Berry, author of * Render unto Rome: The Secret Life of Money in the Catholic Church *
