Structures of Deceit Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Structures of Deceit

Papal Sin charges the Papacy with willful and deliberate disregard for the principles for which the church is supposed to uphold and for the laws of the land. The church is viewed as just another bureaucracy bent on self-perpetuation and subject to all of the foibles and character flaws of men. Wills essentially forcasts in his book what is happening with the church today as a result of its harboring of sexual predators and deviants.
