Fifty Years in the Church of Rome: The Life Story of Pastor Chiniquy, who was for 25 Years a Catholic Priest (Google eBook)
Conversion Testimony of a Former Catholic Priest
As a child, Chiniquy memorized scriptures at his mother's knee and developed a deep love for God. Becoming a priest, he wanted desperately to place full trust in his "church", but was hit by waves of doubt as his "church" claimed adherence to the Gospel, yet violated it at every turn. His jealous superiors falsely accused him, but Abraham Lincoln, a young lawyer from Illinois, defended him and saved his reputation. Chiniquy proves that it was the Jesuits who later killed Lincoln, and explains why.
Finally, after twenty-five years as a priest in the Roman Catholic Church, his bishop demanded that he give up his precious Bible, and pledge blind obedience to the "church. After a dark night of struggle, he emerged gloriously saved, and led almost the entire Catholic population of St. Anne, Illinois to trust in Christ alone. Here is the finest work ever written to show, from the inside, what Catholicism really is. You will feel Chiniquy's broken heart for Catholics, even as he clearly refutes Catholicism's errors. Now, abridged from the 1886 edition, it is even more readable than before!

I just finished reading this book, and I must say that I like it. It's not a straight story of Chiniquy, but its excursions into the many controversial beliefs of the Catholic church is a real eye opener.
If you have read the small booklet, "The secret terrorists", you will soon discover that some materials in there must have been borrowed from this book.
I am reading this book online and I find it quite good,although I have been a Catholic convert for 40 years now.I believe Chinquy is a kookoo bird.This book is way outdated.The Catholic Church is not the way Chinquy says.Chinquy go to hell.
