Vatican City Book Review

If you are going to visit Rome, then you will, of course, visit St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museum. This book, When in Rome, A Journal of Life in Vatican City by Robert J. Hutchinson is a must for you to better understand what the Vatican City State is all about.

If you were brought up as a Roman Catholic as iI was, then it is even a more fascinating look at our faith's history and headquarters.

Hutchinson, himself a Roman Catholic, writes in a style that is light, funny and extremely informative. I highly recommend that you read this book before your next trip to the Eternal City.

As always, thanks to David P. Lassen for not just the idea to peruse this particular book but for actually giving it to me to read!

That looks like a great book to get...but what about "Catholics Guide to Rome?"
