This book has prompted several people to write a review at Amazon.com, so I would like to recommend that you stop by and browse the comments for some very entertaining reading. The Reader's Digest version? Non-Catholics like this book; Catholics hate it.
From Back Cover:
Many are amazed to discover in Revelation 17 that there is also another mysterious character at the heart of prophecy—a woman who rides the beast.
Who is this woman? Tradition says she is connected with the church of Rome. But isn't such a view outdated? After all, today's Vatican is eager to join hands with Protestants worldwide. "The Catholic church has changed," is what we hear.
Or has it? In A Woman Rides the Beast, the prophecy expert Dave Hunt sifts through biblical truth and global events to present a well-defined portrait of the woman and her powerful place in the Antichrist's future empire. Eight remarkable clues in Revelation 17 and 18 prove the woman's identity beyond any reasonable doubt.
