New book probes 'crisis of authority' in Catholicism

 |  NCR Today

I've been writing and talking about responsible dissent in the church for about 20 years, and now comes a new book that examines the whole issue of authority from the viewpoint of history, theology, tradition, Scripture and canon law.

It is titled "The Crisis of Authority in Catholic Modernity." Among the contributors are heavyweights including Fr. Francis Sullivan,
Charles Taylor, Lisa Sowle Cahill and Francis Oakley.

Here is a review from America magazine.
