I picked this book up today on my way home from mass and running errands beacause the title caught my eye and the description from the back cover made it seem like a good read.
I went home and began to read. I could not even get past the introduction. I am going to try and return the book later this afternoon.
I can’t exactly place why I felt so uncomfortable w/ the books content. To me it seemed dangerous… It seemed like Wills was painting a very inacurate portrate of the papacy. It also struck me that he was encouraging Catholics to deny select Church teaching (i.e. issues like contraceptives and abotion).
Have any of you read this book?
What did you think of it?
I felt a little shocked to say the least. :shrug:
