For more than 800 years scholars have pointed to the dark augury having to do with "the last Pope." The prophecy, taken from St. Malachy's "Prophecy of the Popes," is among a list of verses predicting each of the Roman Catholic popes from Pope Celestine II to the final pope, "Peter the Roman," whose reign would end in the destruction of Rome. First published in 1595, the p ...more

I'll start by saying I'm not a papist, but he does deserve a certain amount of respect. I was intrigued to read this book just because in the introduction the author said this wasn't a book bashing Catholics, well guess what - he did that and more. I really don't know what the whole purpose of dissecting Malachy's prophecy of the final pope was, honestly. I totally disagreed with all the unfounded data he collected from different sources that in the end were just a convolution of ideas, of numer ...more

Wow! This book has some depth and it has over 600 footnotes. The information and actual words that people spoke will open your eyes to the truth. The Vatican is a secret society for power and withholding the truth. From the presidents to the popes and bishops to the freemasons and the politicians that want to push "one world government" it's all here and it an exciting read. To think about the demonic realm and how is it present and working it's evil deeds. This is one book that will make you un ...more

The first half of this book is interesting but Chapter14 in particular is so anti-Catholic that I wanted to vomit. I don't know why I'm even staying with it. Well researched (again, first half especially) but also tends to be quite pedantic. ...more

It is about the history and machinations of the Roman Catholic church.
Aug 12, 2012 rated it really liked it
This book is very well researched. With that said, I am not entirely sure that its conclusions are completely viable. the writer has a tendency to extrapolate from the general to the particular in various cases. When dealing with history, this can both be dangerous and reveal a particular bias. One case where he does this, for example, is in supposing that the Vatican probably does have a great deal of Second Temple artifacts because they have been less than honest about other issues concerning ...more

This book is very critical of the Vatican and the people in charge there (not necessarily popes and cardinals, though they have certainly shared in the wrong doing). Most of it was detailed accounts of things I already knew about. I was looking for more tie-in to biblical prophecy, as had been done in other Tom Horn books, but there was little of it. Also, I find it curious that Jesuit activity was not clearly set apart, so readers could draw conclusions about them. it seems to me that like Gold ...more

WOW! This was a captivating, compelling read. However, I did not find it difficult in any manner as I've seen noted by others. Be prepared though if you're Catholic, as I am, as there are a lot of damning facts that come across as condemnation as it should but I was not left with the impression that it was "catholic bashing," only the conveyance of centuries of aberrant behavior and misdeeds reported as facts. It was a fulfilling, eye-opening read supported by excellent sourcing. The truth is am ...more

A little outdated. Predicts the last pope would be elected in 2012. It’s about pope pius visions, st Malachi’s last pope prediction, the Illuminati, freemasons, George Washington, Obama, Antichrist, Vatican 2, apostasy, false religions, Babylon, war in the Middle East, Jerusalem, Islam, Catholicism, etc. all in only 528 pages with references and footnotes. A very long book that I admit I skimmed through at times. Was it worth it? I wish I’d have read the cliff notes version!

One Word: HUBRIS

Editorial Point: 'Christianity' is a monstrous judeo cult – the author of this book of fantasy does plenty to reveal this fact. That any being would accept the creed on/as 'faith' that the Eternal Sovereign Creator would 'send his only son' to die a hideous death at the hands of base and corrupt mortals – in order to 'forgive' depraved mortal 'sins' – is vile beyond any extreme. Only those who believe in the demonic invention 'Jehovah' could dare to embrace such a foul creed.

It isn't every day that I get to preview a book that pulls me in hook, line, and sinker, but Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope is Here has done that and more.

My preview copy runs over 500 tantalizing pages, and each chapter has surprised me. Co-authors Cris Putnam and Tom Horn offer their readers an honest, balanced, and faithful examination of St. Malachy's famous prophecy and the Catholic Church itself, or perhaps I should say `herself'. During their years' of painstaking research and study, the

Bravo! Misters Horn and Putnam have written a comprehensive book on the ideologies, prophecies, historical events, trends and attitudes that will produce the "Man of Sin,' (the last pope). Known as "Petrus Romanus," this last Catholic pope will bring the downfall of the catholic Church and introduce the anti-Christ. The two authors have put a lot of comprehensive research into this and mixed the right amount of conspiracy, secret societies, theories and myth to create a creative and persuasive a ...more

I must have purchased this book when it first came out, and I never finished reading it...I just picked it up again as there are some pretty amazing things going on currently and I find the prophecy issue interesting...however I can't get through it. In just the preface, it mentions someone that apparently bases his opinion on the early church fathers to confirm that the Catholic Church is not responsible for the compilation of the Bible, yet just a couple paragraphs later, the author denies tha ...more

Shelves: prophecy
This is a fantastically researched book - and, notwithstanding the length - is a wonderfully brisk read as well. I found the historical data compelling; the prophetic implications persuasive; the existential reality forthcoming! Horn deals with the prophesy of the popes, and digs around a lot of conjecture, which he rightly points out to, but also deals with a lot of historical fact concerning the Catholic Church, the Vatican, and more. As time trickles near the end of the age, every Christian s ...more

Written by Protestants concerning the election of a Pope Pius XIII,Future Pope,corrupted by the Society of Jesus,who will introduce the Anti-Christ to the World,written in 2012,before Pope Benedict XVI announced his Resignation in February,2013,before the Election of Pope Francis,March 13,2013. Very Interesting reading in how the authors determined their Speculation on events that not have not happened as yet at the Vatican.

I had a hard time getting through this book, although my sister LOVED it. It states out discussing Greek mythology and I never got into Greek mythology. However, I've discovered through this book and others, how important Greek/Roman/the ancient Pagan gods were in understanding the cultures surrounding Biblical times. Although that's not what this book is really about. It's about a prophecy given by a Catholic priest and discusses the question: Did/Is this prophecy come/coming true? ...more

For me as a trained historian, the documentation the authors include, especially, in Chapter 11, "The Pope as Anti-Christ", make it difficult for me to write off the book's thesis as simplistic Catholophobia, i.e.,the Catholic Church system, not Catholics, are evil. And according to the authors "...the anti-Christ will soon appear with the Pope's, maybe even the current one's, active support.

Or might it be that the uniform opinion of evangelical, European Reformers and American revivalists, sin

This book points out the fact that the Vatican has always been a cesspool and that is not going to change. This book follows the Vatican from it's very inception through the last 2000 yrs. There have some very good people, but for the most part the Vatican has been full of careerists not interested in the fact that the Vatican is responsibility for leadership for christians throughout the world. The book centers around the last pope in this world, Petrus Romanus, who follows after the death/resi ...more
I really wanted to like this book. I'm very interested in the subject matter and I've seen these gentlemen interviewed on TV. Unfortunately, I didn't finish it because I didn't like it. I felt it was written by men who had master's degrees and I was trying to understand with a kindergarten education. Since I'm familiar with the topic, I thought this would be a great read. It was a very difficult read. I may go back and try it again, but as of right now, I have other books I would prefer to read ...more

An enjoyable overview of the different theories and actors related to the Prophecy of the Popes.

Petrus Romanus is well written and offers a very intriguing look into the Prophecy of the Popes and other end-times prophecies and conspiracies. I found the quotes to be redundant at times and the discovery of an overall consistent thesis or theory within this work hard to find. However, the book offers a wealth of information and theories through out the ages on the mysterious Prophecy of the Popes.

This book is heavily researched and filled with inciteful, eye-opening details about the Final Pope and his potential role as the false prophet of Revelation. A great read for anyone who studies end time prophecies. Thomas Horn and Chris Putnam guide you through the hidden history behind the Prophecy Of The Popes and how they relate to current events and Biblical prophecy.

I am not a Catholic but if I were I would label this book as anti-catholic. That being said, it was a interesting read nonetheless. It is full of plausible scenarios that can only be tried over time. Either what they prophesied will come to fruition or they will not. This is the real test of a prophecy or a prophet for that matter; not that either author claims to be such.

I found so much of this book to be quite eye opening. there are so many things in the past that Christians don't know and I believe it is important for us to learn because false teachers and false prophets will get to us through our ignorance. while I don't agree with everything this book puts forth, there is so much vital knowledge here that I believe is worth knowing. ...more

Very interesting read. No doubt the Catholic church is involved in a lot of shady stuff. Their research is vast but in the end their conclusions don't match reality. They are neither prophets nor sons of prophets. Yet it is worth the read just to get the background of catholic church history. ...more
