After a period of study in the United States, but obviously still in touch with the concerns of those in the pews, Morwood is back with a new book unlikely to give much comfort to those traditionalists who considered "God Is Near" anathema but welcomed by the many who have benefited from his pastoral vision. (Indeed, the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne has recently banned "Tomorrow's Catholic" from schools and churches.)
"Tomorrow's Catholic" is a very readable presentation of a Catholic theology and spirituality that does not presume a worldview in which the Church is at the center of our society and its authority unquestioned. Morwood is tackling the thorny issue of how to preserve the essence of the gospel and Catholic tradition without the `packaging' of the past. He explains the changing worldview in which we are now immersed, and shows how we can understand God, revelation and Jesus in such a context. He also makes insightful proposals for spirituality and the exercise of leadership in the Church.
Like its predecessor, "God Is Near", Morwood's book is suitable for personal or group use. It includes questions for reflection, suggestions for further reading, a bibliography and index.
I hope that no one is dissuaded from reading this book by the vehemence of some of the critical reviews posted here. Sadly, I think some people let ideology impede open-minded engagement with some wonderfully rich and important ideas. (And it's clear by some comments that certain reviewers haven't even read the book!)
Great stuff -- highly recommended.
