YEAR PUBLISHED: 2008
PUBLISHER: The New York Press
Here are some excerpts from the blurb that summarizes the book:
"Millions of Catholics throughout the world...feel ambivalent about the hierarchical Catholic institution and the rightward agendas of the current and previous popes. [They] long for a church that would more closely reflect their own beliefs and experiences, a church that would offer a welcoming community and serve as a global leader in the fight for justice.........."
"Ruether calls for the dismantling of sexist teaching and authoritarian values, while promoting egalitarian communities that welcome women, gays, and lesbians into full equality in the church and even ordination...."
So I have read about half of this book already and so far I can say that I don't buy into most of what this person is saying but I can almost understand where she is coming from. Personally, I think the author of this book is little bitter.
