Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good autobiography  Apr 6, 2007
Dr Shannon waited decades to explain his resignation from the priesthood and from the Roman Catholic hierarchy. The story is well written and honest. Rome no longer appoints such young priests to the bishopric and this might be an example of the earlier error.
Reluctant Dissenter  Feb 27, 2001
I found this autobiography among the best 5% of books that I have ever read. The author has spent his life as a highly motivated, dedicated idealist. His insights are valuable to me in my own development. His unusual abilities and remarkable personal humility are an unusual combination. As a Roman Catholic, I found that he dealt with some of the Roman Catholics' most difficult problems with the church hierarchy in a charitable and inspiring fashion. His enthusiasm, courage, and optimism in the face of unexpected attacks on his work from his own church should lead us all to an enthusiasm and vision of the church which is positive for the world, the church, and ourselves.
His views are not based on medical facts.  Nov 6, 1999
I heard Dr. Shannon speak at Wayzata Community Church on Nov. 3, and found that when I asked him questions about how the medical facts of the pill work, he was unable to discuss the matter, apparaently from a lack of knowledge. He supports birth control, but has no idea how the primary effect of the pill is to keep the fertilized egg from implanting on the uterus, which is an abortion that is usually unknown to the woman as it will not cause a disruption in her cycle.
Confusing  Nov 1, 1999
Very confusing timeline. It is difficult to understand exactly what transpired in his mind, and how the whole story fits together.
The sad story of a deeply confused man.  Oct 28, 1999
The story of a deep tragedy, of a man who had so much working in his favor, and then couldn't understand the beauty God gave us in marital relations. The story of a man who has joined the culture of death.
