4.0 out of 5 stars Varied reflections on various topics by an author of unvaried quality 3 Sept. 2006
By CDS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In this book Read has gathered a collection of many of his essays written through the years, particularly it seems in the last few years. Some of his essays were a bit hard for me to grasp because they seem to solely address a British audience on concerns of the Catholic Church in Britain. Yet even these essays offered nuggets for consideration. The rest fo his essays covering the gamut from liberation theology to feminism to a moving portrayal of St. Margaret Clitherow are really impressive. You may not always find yourself in agreement with Mr. Read, but I suspect you'll always find that he's at least made you think, and in the process probably has given you a few insights as well.
