Just after some advice. I recently enrollled in a Master of Theological Studies degree at the Australian Catholic University. I am due to commence my first subject - Foundations of the Catholic Faith - next month. The textbook that was listed was What Makes Us Catholic: Eight Gifts for Life by Thomas H. Groome.
I launched right into reading it and noticed an undertone of ?anti-Catholicism in regards to some Catholic traditions e.g. women not being priests. I don’t know if I am being too harsh in my comment above but it just did not sit well with me. The main reason for engaging in further study is God has set my heart on fire (thanks to the wonderful apologists at Catholic Answers, Bishop Robert Barron, Christopher West, Matt Fradd etc) and I just want to learn everything about my faith which I have largely neglected until recent years.
Now I am questioning whether the whole course will have this undertone and undermine my faith development. Is anyone familiar with this text?
Thank you in advance.
