Bad Shepherds: The Dark Years in Which the Faithful Thrived While Bishops Did the Devil’s Work

Rod Bennett
Sophia Institute Press, 147 pages


As the astute observer will rightly surmise, Bad Shepherds is a book about bad bishops, just not the ones you might read about in today’s headlines. Rather, author Rod Bennett is reminding us that the Catholic Church has had corrupt and sinful leaders in its ranks since apostolic times — and the Faith has survived in spite of them. Should we ever become concerned the Church might collapse, we ought to consider the grave infighting and bitter divisions over the 4th-century Arian heresy, the bewilderingly scandalous popes of the 14th century, or the Catholic apostates behind the 16thcentury Reformation. This book lends hope through our present days.
