Editorial Reviews

Review

"High-minded cultural criticism, concise, rhetorically agile, lit up by Douthat's love for the Roman Catholic Church....an adroit, perceptive, gripping account....It's strong stuff, conversationally lively and expressive."—The New York Times Book Review

"Erudite and thought-provoking....weaves a gripping account of Vatican politics into a broader history of Catholic intellectual life to explain the civil war within the church....Douthat manages in a slim volume what most doorstop-size, more academic church histories fail to achieve: He brings alive the Catholic 'thread that runs backward through time and culture, linking the experiences of believers across two thousand years.' He helps us see that Christians have wrestled repeatedly with the same questions over the past two millennia."—The Washington Post

“Absorbing.”—Booklist

"A powerfully prophetic work whose sobriety and fairness magnifies the force of its warning. Pope Francis is leading a theological revolution whose recklessness beggars belief, and the effects of which stand to be more epochal than most Catholics realize. Ross Douthat reads the signs of these anxious times with acute clarity and far-seeing vision. To Change the Church is must reading for every Christian who cares about the fate of the West and the future of global Christianity."—Rod Dreher, author of The Benedict Option

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for Non-Catholics As Well
By J. McBrearty on March 11, 2019
Ross Douthat has made the war in the Vatican understandable for Catholics and Non-Catholics alike. And, yes, he refers to Catholicism as being in the midst of a civil war between reformers and traditionalists. But, what makes change so difficult when its obvious the Church is in serious trouble? Douthat explains: the doctrine of infalibility. If people don't know what that means or why it's important, it's this....Catholics must believe the Pope cannot err when he speaks for God.
On the other hand, change means someone got it wrong. And if the Church is inspired by the Holy Spirit, does this mean the Holy Spirit makes mistakes? It's an interesting question that I couldn't help asking after reading this book.
