276 indexed pages. No world-wide institution has changed as quickly and as radically as the Roman Catholic Church in recent years, yet it remains a paradox. Many people see it as a reactionary force while others experience it as a powerful movement towards spiritual renewal and radical social and political change. With wide experience of the full-time ministry, Paul Collins explains the extraordinary change that has swept over the Church and the important issues facing the Australian Catholic community now. This is a hook for everyone who seeks to understand how an institution that has shaped our culture is wrestling to adjust to the future. The author has a masterís degree in theology from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in history from the Australian National University (ANU). He has taught church history and theology in Australia, the United States and Pacific countries and has worked as a Catholic parish priest in Sydney and Hobart. In March 2001 he resigned from his role as a Catholic priest due to a dispute with the Vaticanís Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith over this book. The Vaticanís investigation centred on this 1997 book "Papal Power" which was said to imply that "a true and binding revelation" does not exist; to deny that the Church of Christ is identified with the Catholic Church and to deny the doctrine of papal infallibility. Collins was further accused of holding the view that a teaching, to be considered church doctrine, must be approved through the sensus fidelium - the "sense of the people" - as well as by bishops and theologians. In explaining his resignation, Collins cited the increasing rigidity and sectarianism of the Vatican, stating that the August 2000 declaration Dominus Jesus expressed "a profoundly anti-ecumenical spirit at odds with the sense of Godís grace permeating the whole cosmos". First page carrires a dedication to Eddie which seems to be from the author.
