This excellent book shows how Christendom suffered "shipwreck" in the Protestant Revolt against Christ and His Catholic Church. Belloc traces the struggle, blow by blow, from the Advent of the Disaster, to the opening of the "floodgates" with Luther in 1517, through the "English Accident" and Calvin. He then shows the spiritual, military, political and financial struggles of this conflict among the French, English, Scottish, Dutch and German, describing how by 1648 the battle to keep Christendom united and in the Catholic Faith had failed of exhaustion, ending in a divided Europe, with the Protestant rebellion settling down to permanent possession of certain previously Catholic areas of Europe.

Belloc describes how it was not doctrine, but avarice and rebellion against the clergy which originally fuelled the Reformation. Among the other things you'll discover:

- The doctrine of "Justification By Faith Alone" was not a motive of the movement, but an afterthought
-That England fell to Protestantism through a "political accident"
- How Calvin clarified and shaped the anti-Catholic fury into a definite program
- How the rare opportunity to transfer Church lands and revenues into private hands provided a powerful incentive for the gentry and nobles to cast their lot with the new Protestant movement

No educated person can ignore this presentation of the facts of history.
