Item:253264499188THE COURAGE TO BE CATHOLIC Crisis, Reform and the Future of the ChurchNew PAPERBACK Book By George Weigel Stocked In Australia About the Book When sexual scandals rocked the Catholic Church, many observers and faithful alike called on the church to abandon its tenets on the vocation of the priesthood and sexuality outside marriage. Acclaimed theologian George Weigel saw the crisis differently; as a crisis of fidelity to the true essence of Catholicism. In this acclaimed book that continues to touch a chord with practising Catholics, Weigel exposes the patters of dissent and self-deception that became entrenched in seminaries, among priests, and ultimately among the bishops who failed their flock by thinking like managers instead of apostles. As Weigel reminds us, in the Biblical world, a “crisis” is also a time of great opportunity, an invitation to deeper faith. With honesty and critical rigor, Weigel sets forth an agenda for genuine refom that challenges clergy and laity alike to lead more integrally Catholic lives. The Courage to be Catholic is a bracing, forward-looking call to action, and a passionate embrace of life lived in faith.
