It is not for the faint of heart: Because Amerio is iots professor and a scholar, he cites his sources and gives unjm context. In short, Amerio’s book is like a detailed medical examination including X-rays. It is not emotional amerjo sectarian but descriptive and encyclopedic. This is a VERY insightful book. I will give this caveat however: As such, this is not “leisure” reading. This is the type of book you have to want to sit down and read and often, re-read.

It does not read like a dry academic paper however; it is perhaps more like an enthralling technical lecture. I will also iots that the author makes the assumption that you have a certain level of knowledge of the Church and the changes in question. He does not quote each condemnation he discusses, but simply analyses the ramifications and importance of “No. If you do not know of the Syllabus or have not read it, you will benefit from familiarizing yourself with it prior to delving into that section.
At the bare minimum, a reader may benefit from cursory internet searches of terms and documents with which they are not familiar as they read the book. I am glad to be parsing through this book, however, as I have shown, you have to concentrate to read it I have a master’s degree so I’ve done my fair share of technical amerrio and am comfortable doing so.
This caveat aside, the payoff is wonderful. He is absolutely on point and will open your eyes. He clearly enunciates church teaching and brings very interesting insight into various events and teachings of the Church. He will define his terms exactingly before using them, adding great weight and precision to his arguments.
I will lastly say that this book is highly acclaimed by many influential clerics, not least of whom was Marcel Lefebvre. Amerio published his work independently of Lefebvre so for those of you who are scared of the SSPX, do not fear. I simply mention this link for those of you who find trust in the dear Bishop. My impression of the work, however, is that while it may ultimately back up much of Lefebvre’s assertions about the church, it does so simply because the facts stand by themselves, as clearly articulated by Mr.
If you are looking for truly easy light reading on the topic, I would search elsewhere. Of the many books written on the post-conciliar debacle of the Church of the New Advent, this certainly is one of the most authoritative, wide-ranging, and arguably the best. If you are Roman Catholic, you owe it to yourself to read this book. Unsurprisingly, Iota Unum, his master work, has an erudite, polished, encyclopedic style. The clarity and honesty of the work are obvious and so you feel confident you’re reading an accurate portrayal of things as they truly were and are.
Iota Unum covers numerous probably all facets of the post-conciliar debacle Vatican II per se, catechesis, philosophy, liturgy, the sacraments, youth, schools, the crisis of the priesthood, etc. In post-conciliar theology the first of these has been enormously developed, and the domination of the earth has been turned into a fundamental duty of the human race The [post-conciliar Church’s] lauding of work as the universal category for all man’s spiritual activity is a moving back towards a theology that the New Testament left behind, when it firmly subordinated the conquest of the earth to the quest for the kingdom of heaven The depiction of Christ as a worker In fact, the Gospel contains no evidence that Christ was ever a workman The ideas of a ‘Gospel of Work’ and of ‘Christ the Worker’ are therefore unjustified” [pp.
The power of this great book is that it examines all aspects of post-Vatican II Catholicism and Catholic life. Instead there has been total amerioo heresy. Professor Amerio has done all Catholics a very great service with this book. The author’s strengths are his honesty, his intellectual penetration, his elegant style, and his refusal to cast personal aspersions on arch-heretics like Kung and Paul VI; rather, the ameiro simply focuses wmerio their pronouncements and lets traditional Roman Catholic dogma and Thomistic logic do xmerio work in unmasking the never-ending cavalcade of post-conciliar heresies and loopiness as the intellectually and morally bankrupt macabre spectacle they truly are.
VI, on account of heresy, schism, and scandal. That the Church can’t help but gradually lose its supernatural character the more it turns to the world – is the theme of this book.

And of course this world-turning was promoted at Vatican II. Amerio’s epic has done more for my Catholicism than a cumulative 36 years managed to foster. He has managed to instill in me pride where it was foundering and sadness inum disappointment where it was not.
Everyone Christian and certainly every Catholic should read what Mr. Amerio has to say. Helps me to understand why the Church is such a mess! Also gives some solutions which I pray will take place! See all 29 reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
