The first volume of the 11-volume study on Vatican II
Eli, Eli, Lamma Sabacthani? (My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?)
A classic.

New, revised, updated 3rd edition with Word & Subject Index!


This book broke the myth of Vatican II! In 1997 when it was first published, no one dared to disagree publicly with the Council. Today everyone discusses its progressivist influence.

Know how ambiguity in the official texts of Vatican II opened the door for progressivist interpretations. Learn how Progressivism then installed itself in the Catholic Church.

A carefully written, authoritative book about the Council and its aftermath. This is becoming the defining book on the inner workings of Vatican II and what it means for the Church.

A landmark in American Catholicism

From the Special Foreword by Fr. Malachi Martin:

"This volume established the author, Atila Sinke Guimarães, as one of the best informed latter day students of that epochal event, the Second Vatican Council … One reads in this volume with a certain sickening feeling the unified way in which the Church's own theologians and prelates conspired willingly to bring about the present trend to the de-Romanization and the de-Catholicizing of the once monolithic institution."





The author of In the Murky Waters of Vatican II, Mr. Atila Sinke Guimarães, warns his readers that the edition of this book by TAN Books and Publishers, which is being advertised and sold by this company, DOES NOT HAVE HIS AUTHORIZATION. Since February 2000, the president of TAN, Mr. Thomas A. Nelson, has acted in open rupture of contract, disregarding Catholic Morals and International Copyright Law.

The same warning applies to the separate TAN edition titled The Catholic Church and Homosexuality, which is the Appendix of In the Murky Waters of Vatican II.
