Why Be A Catholic?
By Mark Dooley Continuum [euro]14.50
The recent history of the Catholic Church has been dominated by the horrific accounts of the abuse of children and by the apparent attempts by some Church authorities to conceal that abuse. As a result, the moral authority of the Church has been seriously eroded and many Catholics have wondered why they continue to belong to it. Over the years, quite a few books have tried to answer the question of why one should be or continue to be a Catholic. Now academic and Mail columnist Mark Dooley, who has been a friend of mine for many years, has added his contribution to the topic.
