I have just received this book and cannot comment on the text other than to express great surprise at what I assume to be a rather glaring editing error. The chapter subheadings in the index are very different from the subheadings in the main text. Chapter Eight for example: Index: "Chapter Eight, Darkening Valley:2003 - 2004. - Return of a poet - The Eucharist and the Church - War, again - Europe in crisis - Following St John of the Cross - To defend Life - Episcopal memories - Among the sick." In the main text they are found as the following, even with a different convention for capitalisation: " Cosmos and Chaos - The Eucharistic Church - War in Iraq - Crisis of Faith in Europe - Constituting Europe - Dark Nights - The Long Distance Pontificate - Heroic Virtue in Defense of Life - A Bishop Reminisces - Soldiering On -"A Sick Man Among the Sick" - No Disposable Human Beings" This is a glaring indexing error in what is supposed to be a serious book.
