About this title


Christianity began as a simple faith with all believers brothers and sisters in Christ. Growth brought a hierarchy of priests and prelates to formulate doctrine and govern the churches. This hierarchy soon focused more on power and pelf than spirituality. In the Eleventh Century the Roman bishop's claim to supremacy over all clergy and communicants drove away Eastern Christendom. By the Sixteenth Century the hierarchy's corruption, venality, immorality and unBiblical doctrines led to The Reformation: The Inquisition and campaigns against "heretics" slaughtered hundreds of thousands of God-fearing men, women and children. And even today its demand for conformity to unScriptural dogmas in alienating millions.

About the Author:

The Author has had poetry, articles and 11 plays published; seven plays were produced at theaters in New York and other venues around the country. He has produced/directed a 94-minute film from one of his plays, has worked at United Press, Popular Mechanics magazine, and spent 25 years writing advertising at such agencies as J. Walter Thompson, BBDO, Grey Advertising and Young & Rubicam. A fascination with history and religion, especially the rise and development of the Christian Church, led to his writing this book.
