Andrew Greeley

I have ordered the book “The Catholic Imagination” by Andrew Greeley, but I am wary because I have read that he is a liberal or dissident Catholic (I have never read anything by him). Is there anything theologically objectionable in his writings? Would anyone recommend him to read?

Of his religious works I’ve read the The Sinai Myth & The Mary Myth the are both very good – here is not using the word “myth” to mean fictional or legendary.

There have been several other threads in the past about Fr. Greeley. Here is one:
