Recommended for: thoughtful Catholics
Read in January, 2002

Probably the first "progressive" book I ever read, and not a bad one. Many of Carroll's sincere suggestions are worth considering. But I couldn't help feeling throughout that there is a barely-veiled bitterness lurking behind every page, bittereness particularly regarding his status as a former Catholic priest, which put me off slightly. But that aside, an intense little volume, well-written and bound to provoke much discussion.
