From a bestselling author with unprecedented access to Pope
Francis, an investigative look at the recent financial
scandals at the highest levels of the Vatican
A veritable war is waging in the Church: on one side, there
is Pope Francisís strong message for one church of the poor
and all; on the other, there is the old Curia with its
endless enemies, and the old and new lobbies struggling to
preserve their not-so-Christian privileges.
The old guard do not back down, they are ready to use all
means necessary to stay in control and continue the immoral
way they conduct their business. They resist reforms sought
by Pope Francis and seek to delegitimize their opponents, to
isolate those who want to eliminate corruption. Itís a war
that will determine the future of the church. And if he
loses the battle against secular interests and blackmail,
Pope Francis could resign, much like his predecessor.
Based on confidential information―including top secret
documents from inside the Vatican, and actual transcripts of
Pope Francisís admonishments to the papal court about the
lack of financial oversight and
the Temple illustrates all the undercover work conducted by
the Pope since his election and shows the reader who his
real enemies are. It reveals the instruments Francis is
using to reform the Vatican and rid it, once and for all, of
the overwhelming corruption traditionally encrusted in the
Roman Catholic Church.
Merchants in the Temple is a startling book that will shock
every reader. Itís a story worthy of a Dan Brown novel, with
its electrifying details of the trickery and scheming
against the papacy―except that it is real.
