Abstract:

That the entire reform and renewal movement in contemporary Catholicism is foredoomed is only one of the many controversial judgments in this highly controversial book. It is, however, much more than merely a book about current Catholic developments; it is a book that confronts the issue of Christianity's very survival as a religious force in the modern world. This is Charles Davis's most constructive and creative theological work to date. It critiques and demolishes only that it may redevelop and rebuild.
