EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The New York Times Bestseller '[An] earth-shaking exposé of clerical corruption' - National Catholic Reporter In the Closet of the Vatican exposes the rot at the heart of the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church today. This brilliant piece of investigative writing is based on four years' authoritative research, including extensive interviews with those in power. The celibacy of priests, the condemnation of the use of contraceptives, the cover up of countless cases of sexual abuse, the resignation of Benedict XVI, misogyny among the clergy, the dramatic fall in Europe of the number of vocations to the priesthood, the plotting against Pope Francis – all these issues are clouded in mystery and secrecy. In the Closet of the Vatican is a book that reveals these secrets and penetrates this enigma. It derives from a system founded on a clerical culture of secrecy which starts in junior seminaries and continues right up to the Vatican itself. It is based on the double lives of priests and on extreme homophobia. The resulting schizophrenia in the Church is hard to fathom. But the more a prelate is homophobic, the more likely it is that he is himself gay. 'Behind rigidity there is always something hidden, in many cases a double life'. These are the words of Pope Francis himself and with them the Pope has unlocked the Closet. No one can claim to really understand the Catholic Church today until they have read this book. It reveals a truth that is extraordinary and disturbing.

War For Eternity

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A riveting exposé of the hidden philosophical movement that drives the populist right around the world Steve Bannon in the United States. Aleksandr Dugin in Russia. Olavo de Carvalho in Brazil. All rising to positions of power in the past decade. All affiliated with an obscure philosophical movement called Traditionalism. Since its birth in the early 20th century, Traditionalism has defined itself against modernity and Enlightenment values. Traditionalist thinkers celebrated hierarchy, denounced the idea of progress, and regarded liberal secularism, capitalism, and communism as aligned forces working to replace social, cultural and political norms. Ethnographer Benjamin Teitelbaum had been studying Traditionalism for years as a sort of novelty, associated with a restless subsection of the right -- too antisocial for activism and largely without influence. And yet when Steve Bannon entered the White House in 2017, reports suggested he was an avid reader of Traditionalist teachings. Teitelbaum spent years infiltrating this strange group of self-styled thinkers, gurus and influencers and getting to the heart of their philosophy. Through exclusive interviews and deep historical context, he reveals the radical worldview infusing the thinking of powerful figures today and inspiring a renegade reinterpretation of humanity, geopolitics and history. Fast-paced and gripping, War for Eternity is a riveting expose and a must-read for anyone trying to understand the Far Right's vision to change the world.

After the devastating loss of their only son, twelve-year-old Stephen to a horrific suicide, and their anguish compounded when they learn that someone also molested him, Kate and Clive Jessap start their search for answers at his private Catholic school in the Hollywood Hills. The detective on the case questions all of the teachers and students, except Father Toby, Stephen's mentor, who is missing. The church is unwilling to divulge his whereabouts and the detective suspects that he has gone back to Rome. With no jurisdiction in Rome and being fully aware of the Vatican's ranking effectively above the law, the detective acknowledges there is no more he can do. The Jessaps however, are determined to get to the bottom of what happened and go to Rome where they team up with Kate's brother. The priest they trailed there is murdered but not before, he shares information that leads to ancient documents and a written confession. With the unearthing of these documents, Kate, Clive and Sean find themselves caught in a web of lies, deceit and illegal activities linking the Vatican, Mafia and the American Embassy. Determined to get justice, they set out with relentless fervor to untangle the intrigues. Those who seek to keep the secrets will stop at nothing, including murdering anyone that threatens their power. The Jessaps find themselves on that list and must outwit and survive their enemies, while they face the dilemma of what to do with secrets that could shake the Vatican to its core and change the face of Christianity forever.
