From the Outside: Browser review in Irish Times

From the Outside: Rethinking Church Doctrine

by Tony Flannery 

Red Stripe Press, 120pp

 Redemptorist Tony Flannery was suspended from public ministry in 2012 for expressing controversial views on issues like the ordination of women, same-sex marriage and the evolution of priesthood. His latest book describes life on the “outside” of the Catholic Church, which has afforded him the time to reflect on church doctrine and practice.

Flannery remains critical of many areas of Catholic teaching, including the Immaculate Conception.

Brief review of From the Outside

This from a priest a good few years older than myself. Lovely.

I have just finished reading “From the outside”. What a hurricane!! A hurricane that left nothing standing in its path.  “From the outside” is not for the faint hearted.  I thought he let the Irish Church off lightly just by saying the Irish Bishops were arrogant. They were more than arrogant. They were intolerant, bad-tempered and, because of their superiority complex, destroyed people’s careers.
