Description
The author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist Case Closed and Killing the Dream, investigative reporter Gerald Posner here traces the political intrigue and inner workings of the Catholic Church. Decidedly not about faith, belief in God, or religious doctrine, this book is about the church's accumulation of wealth and its byzantine entanglements with financial markets across the world. Told through 200 years of prelates, bishops, cardinals, and the popes who oversee it all, it is a startling account of money and power in what may be the most influential organization in the history of the world.

"An exhaustive history of the financial machinations at the center of the church in Rome ... an extraordinarily intricate tale of intrigue, corruption and organized criminality.... Posner's gifts as a reporter and storyteller are most vividly displayed in a series of lurid chapters on the American archbishop Paul Marcinkus, the arch-Machiavellian who ran the Vatican Bank from 19711989."NYTBR

"Posner ... is a merciless pitbull of an investigator, marshaling mountains of evidence to make his arguments.... The heart of God's Bankers lies in chapters devoted to the church's actions during and immediately after World War II. In these chapters, Posner dissects the church's actions with the eye of a prosecutor."Chicago Tribune
