The Jesuits : the Society of Jesus and the betrayal of the Roman Catholic Church by Malachi Martin( Book )

36 editions published between 1899 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "The Jesuits", Malachi Martin reveals for the first time the harrowing behind-the-scenes story of the "new" worldwide Society of Jesus. The leaders and the dupes; the blood and the pathos; the politics, the betrayals and the humiliations; the unheard-of alliances and compromises. "The Jesuits" tells a true story of today that is already changing the face of all our tomorrows
Vatican : a novel by Malachi Martin( Book )

25 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in 4 languages and held by 1,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is the world's oldest political power, a vast financial empire, and a maze-like bureaucracy -- and yet its sole purpose is to proclaim and effect Christian salvation. It is the Vatican, and only an insider could reveal its complex secrets; only a bestselling author could weave its many strands into the novel that captures its full sweep and drama. Vatican is a rich and monumental saga with a scope and daring that slice through the protective secrecy of the Roman Catholic Church to reveal as never before the lives of men and women entangled in the extraordinary battle between faith and power. - Jacket flap
The final conclave by Malachi Martin( Book )

23 editions published in 1978 in 3 languages and held by 1,263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The shroud of secrecy that has surrounded the Church of Rome has mystified and troubled millions of Catholics as well as non-Catholics. This book reveals how influential members of that Church were ready to make their accommodation with a future under communism. The price of the Church's survival, they believed, must be a radical departure from Western institutions and the way of life we have all known. Opposed to them are other important officials who plead for a restoration of the Church to its proper role. The final decision taken by all these men, who speak for one quarter of the world's population, was made in the course of Conclave 82, a special meeting after the death of Paul VI at which the next Pope was elected. Dr. Martin, a former Jesuit, takes us behind the scenes to witness the forbidden maneuvering for Peter's crown and its worldly power; from the beginning of the seventies, many of the Cardinals have been electioneering. We learn why the sweeping changes of Paul VI, made--he was convinced--to assure the very survival of the Church, have pushed the Cardinals to one of the most critical decisions in our history. We watch the deal-makers, the holy men, the politicking, and the cynical alliances as the various factions attempt to gain control. All of the Cardinals are confronted by the accumulated corruption of more than a millennium: the Church as businessman, as a multi-national conglomerate involved in ownership and management of property, and as power-broker dealing in countries, continents, and human liberty. In the heart of this book, Malachi Martin recreates the actual scenario of Conclave 82. The reader will know more about the complete process from having experienced it in this book than many a Cardinal-Elector, including how illegal secret communications with the outside world are maintained. In a dramatic crescendo we witness a climax more moving than any play can ever be because we know it involves the future lives of nations, including our own. --Adapted from dust jacket

What happens when a human being becomes possessed by Satan? What are the horrors of being possessed? What type of man is an exorcist?

Here for the first time, in a book of unforgettable power and compassion that is being praised as a milestone by churchmen of varied faiths, are documented case histories of possession and exorcism -- the real life dramas of five Americans whose exorcisms were performed between 1965 and 1974. - Jacket flap

Jesus now by Malachi Martin( Book )

13 editions published between 1973 and 1977 in English and Spanish and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most obvious fact about Jesus today is his seeming disappearance from the lives, lands, and cultures where he was once all dominant. In fact, the sacred words, "Here is my body. Take it. Eat it," have been used obscenely and with impunity in recent theater. At such a moment, Malachi Martin provides in Jesus Now a compelling statement (in some respects a theological breakthrough) of the action of Jesus of Nazareth in the lives of men and women today. - Jacket flap
