An excellent account of what a mess the Catholic Church is in by an ordained academic who knows it from the inside and loves it despite its imperfections and failures.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sloppy, 4 Dec. 2015
An interesting account but lamentably cavalier about names. The bishop of London was Chartres not Chartiss (p 317) but more seriously the heresy case in the C19 was against George Gorham not Gorman (ch 19). One wonders how many other errors the book contains of which one is unaware.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very important study of the origin of the gospels, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book should be better known! It explains why the gospels are in the form they are now and why they seem to contradict each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars An odd corner of ecclesiastical history, 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent and readable brief account of the C16 reforming Council of the Catholic Church following the protestant reformation. It dispels many preconceptions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A balanced and authoritative account, 14 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An exciting and authoritative account of the Council and its antecedents, it uses the five volume Alberigo and Komonchack of course but is more helpful than the Alberigo paperback. A balanced assessment of Vatican II, not afraid to face the problems its non-reception by the Roman bureaucracy has caused.

4.0 out of 5 stars Death of a monastic community, 7 July 2010
This is an honest account of the strange phenomenon of C20 Anglican monasticism, which almost came to and end when the community sought admission into the RC Church. This is the story of the remnant who wanted to continue the experiment and explains why it was doomed to failure.
