Praise for John Allen

The Rise of Benedict XVI

“(An) incisive look at the leader of the world’s 1.1 billion Catholics, written with the clarity and precision of a seasoned journalist.” —The Salt Lake Tribune

“A rich and thoughtful analysis of the present-day Catholic Church and its complex spiritual leader.” —Publishers Weekly

“This book is most definitely worth reading . . . Required reading for anyone who wants to understand the meaning of the extraordinary sequence of events that unfolded in Rome.” —The Tablet
All the Pope’s Men

“[A] superb book” —Chicago Sun-Times

“The National Catholic Reporter’s Vatican correspondent John L. Allen, Jr., unpacks several popular myths as well as the psychology, sociology, and theology that inform the Holy See’s worldview. But All the Pope’s Men is not a polemic. It’s a patient look at Vatican ways of thinking and acting.” —San Antonio Express-News

“An exceedingly valuable book.” —Fr. Richard John Neuhaus, First Things


“An invaluable primer . . . highly informative.”—Washington Post

“Definitely a winner.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“It’s surprising how much you learn from this book . . . [Allen] explain[s] the process in an engaging way, and offers history, context and his own list of front-runners.” —Arizona Republic
