Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0955413303, Paperback)

Unlike Dan Brown's «The Da Vinci Code», David Ranan's well researched «Double Cross: The Code of the Catholic Church» is a fact based, across-the board analysis of the Catholic Church. His conclusions are not less startling. The book reflects on whether there is a systemic fault at the heart of the Church and considers the paradox between her message of love and her history of violence. Ranan's insightful analysis explains why the modern Church has such difficulty in reversing her teachings on such fundamental questions as birth control, abortions, the Jews, and other shibboleths. He explains why the Church has even today failed to give anything more than a half hearted apology for Galileo's `trial` and why she has for so long covered up sexual abuse by her priests. This compelling book will be of interest to anyone whose life is or was affected by the Church, as well as Catholics and non-Catholics who are interested in the power of religion and who wonder about the ability of the Church to change.
