More About Charles Chiniquy
Charles Chiniquy (1809-1899) was a Canadian Catholic priest who left the Catholic Church and became a Protestant. He is known for his writings and sermons against the Roman Catholic Church. In the period between 1885 and 1899 he was the focus of a great deal of discussion in the United States of America. During the 1880s his conspiracy theories included the claim to have exposed the Jesuits as the assassins of President Abraham Lincoln, and that, if unchecked, the Jesuits could eventually politically rule the United States. Chiniquy was born in 1809 in the village of Kamouraska, Quebec. He lost his father at an early age and was adopted by his uncle. As a young man, Chiniquy studied to become a Catholic priest at the Petit Seminaire (Little Seminary) in Nicolet, Quebec. He was ordained a Catholic priest in 1833. After his ordination, he served his Church in Quebec and later immigrated to Illinois. During the 1840s, he led a very successful campaign throughout Quebec against alcohol and drunkenness. Later, Chiniquy claimed that he was falsely accused by his superiors (and that Abraham Lincoln had come to his rescue), that the American Civil War was a plot against the United States of America by the Vatican, and that the Vatican was behind the Confederate cause, the death of President Lincoln and that Lincoln's assassins were faithful Roman Catholics ultimately serving Pope Pius IX. After leaving the Catholic Church, Chiniquy dedicated his life to trying to win his fellow French Canadians, as well as others, from Catholicism to the Protestant faith. He wrote a number of books and tracts pointing out the errors in the faith and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. His most influential works are "Fifty Years in The Church of Rome," "The Priest, and "The Woman and The Confessional." These books raised concerns in the United States about the Catholic Church.
Charles Chiniquy was born in 1809 and died in 1899.
Reviews - What do customers think about Fifty Years in the Church of Rome?
A work of true Christian, and historical literature. Feb 6, 2008
I highly recomend this book to anyone who is serious about studying American/Canadian or Church history. It is an eye opening book. From the first few pages I was hooked. I couldn't put it down. It is well worth the time spent reading it. People of our day need to be informed about the truth of the Catholic Church, the Jesuits and their plots. All that glitters is not gold, and Chiniquy does an exellent job of pointing that out. If you read this book, you will see the disillusionment and discouragement he experienced. Chiniquy surely must have been a man of great charicter and integrity. This book proves the power of God's precious word, and the clear fact that the "church" of Rome hates that book and all it represents. If you sincerly desire to know the truth, read this book!
A classic of american anti-catholic bigotry Mar 26, 2006
I read this book, on internet.It's avaliable free.Even free, I didn't finished it.This is a bad book. At first, this book has so many frauds, that I can't number, the lies in a single chapter. To exemple, this book claims that a jesuit/catholic plot was responsable for the murder of the american president Abraham Lincoln, who is an absurd.In fact, the man who murdered Abraham Lincoln, John Wilkes Booth, never was a catholic.In fact, Abraham Lincoln never was a Pope's foe. At the same time, this ridiculous book never talks about the money's scandal, who really retire the author from Roman Catholic Church.Also this book never tells nothing, about bad things like Jim Crouwn laws, linching, genocide of indians and other bad things at that time of american history.
a question for the deceased author... Jun 28, 2005
My question for Mr. Chiniquy would be, were he alive, "Why did you stay 50 years in the Church of Rome if it was such a pit of depravity and a morass of evil?" I MEAN, FIFTY YEARS? It's hard enough reading the book--LIVING it for 50 years would seem to be mindbogglingly soul-searing. C'mon--either he was a liar and this never happened or he was complicit in the wrongdoing. Like that old Chinease proverb says, 'To ignore evil is to become part of it.'
This is one of the most important books I have ever read! Jul 25, 1999
I have read this book twice and have shared it with many other folks, we even read it to our young son and he wanted to hear it again. Chiniquy was a loving and lovable Christian and his whole life the Holy Spirit was calling him out of the Church of Rome, he finally made the big switch and joined a Protestant church and at the end of his long life he wrote a book called 40 years in the Church of Christ, also a good book to read, read it and let the Spirit work on your heart too!!! (I would like to buy a used copy of 50 Years..) Love, Marvin D from Tennessee.
Will change the reader's views on the Roman Catholic Church May 14, 1999
I thought that the book gave a good detailed account of the dealings of the bishops of the Roman Church with the people of the church and the other officers (priests). The account of Pastor Chiniquy's dealings with Abraham Lincoln were very revealing and interesting. The Jesuit's role in the affair was also intriguing. The book was very well written and stimulating especially considering the era in which it was written.
