Reviews - What do customers think about PARADOX: The American Catholic: A Medieval Church in the Twenty-First Century?
Excellent background for the current turmoil in the Church May 2, 2002
I found this book particularly interesting in light of the current turmoil in the Catholic Church. Looking at the history of the Church in this truthful, revealing way helps shed perspective on where we are now in the Church and how we got here. It also helps explain why it is so difficult for the hierarchy to change. The anecdotes sprinkled throughout make it readable and relevant. I would recommend this book to anyone searching for answers to the above questions or just looking for an unvarnished, brief church history.
