4.0 out of 5 stars The Emerging Catholic Church November 24, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent book and worth reading in view of the current situation in the Church. Many things were about the state of things in America but the same applies to the Church here in Australia and elsewhere. For many years the Hierarchy of the Church from the Pope down have swept the problem under the carpet in the vain hope that it would never surface. Consequently we are now reaping the results in the lack of Vocations to all aspects of Religious Life and the Priesthood in particular.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book of Courage and Insight May 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tom Roberts writes out of wide experience with excellent credentials. He speaks to the concern many Catholics feel for the Church we love. I sense no rancor in this book but deep loyalty as well as uncompromising honesty. Roberts clearly identifies the seriousness of the crisis the Catholic Church is facing and joins the search all of us are on in the hope for a "better dawn."

It is well written & has tons of information I was not previously aware of in such detail. I am glad I purchased it for future reference for a class I am taking.
