Item description for Rethinking Celibacy, Reclaiming the Church by Michael H. Crosby...
Overview In this courageous work, Michael Crosby offers a trenchant analysis of mandatory celibacy in the Roman Catholic Church. He shows how the imposition of celibacy has now revealed a deeper issue: the abuse of power as well as the abuse of women and homosexuals. This updated edition of Crosby's award-winning "Celibacy: Means of Control or Mandate of the Heart?" will once again reveal Roman Catholicism to be a religion with an inspiring model of evangelical life and witness.WIPF and Stock
