Popes & Bankers - A Review
Jack Cashill has hit a home run with this book. Popes & Bankers is a methodical review of how society has used money throughout the bible and beyond. It is a book I have now read twice and find that I realize more each time I turn a page about the function of money. Money means power and he who has the money has the power.
An amazing series of events has occurred in history in a struggle to control that power. Just as strong have been the forces to keep the accumulated power. The biblical references are powerful. Although the book is a study in money it is also a students reflection on the topic.
If you ever really wondered how the world acquired the tremendous financial difficulties that now seem to plague us, you need to read this book.
Popes and Bankers was provided to me by the publisher for an unbiased review.
