Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book, but in terrible condition  Mar 23, 2007
I was happy to get my hands on this book, but the previous owner had not only highlighted in it, but scribbled notations and drawn boxes and circles all over the place. It is very distracting, and I am very unhappy with this purchase.
Excellent book  Sep 30, 2005
This is a book which is well-written and in very simple language. It is is easy to understand and the reflection questions allow for group discussion following each chapter. When I first saw the title, I wasn't sold on the book. But since we have gotten into the book, I am enjoying it very much and can readily identify with a lot of the references to the past and how we need to up-date our thinking if the Church is to remain a viable entity in the world today.
Jumble of half-formed ideas  Dec 29, 2003
In the words of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne, this book "presents Christ, the Trinity and Redemption in terms which can not be reconciled with the doctrine of the [Catholic] Church."

I received the book as a gift and, from the beginning of reading it, was suspicious of its content; the author and the publisher take great pains to hide the direction of the author's argument. Essentially, this now ex-priest attempts to disprove Original Sin, the divinity of Jesus and his redemptive mission, and the doctrine of the Trinity. These ideas must, according to Mr. Morwood's logic, be disregarded because these ideas can not coexist with the modern mind, and in particular with modern cosmology and contemporary Biblical scholarship.

It is clear from reading this book that the author does not have a clear grasp of his subject matter. He presents the teachings of the Church in an overly simplistic and oftentimes incorrect manner; then he provides pages of self-contradictory arguments for his enlightened, "modern" viewpoint. As I understand it, he believes in some vague, pantheistic spirituality in which God is good and is in everything, and Jesus lived a very Godly life that we should emulate. There is no Original Sin (as disproved somehow--he doesn't say how--by evolution and cosmology) and thus no need for redemption, and thus no need for a redeemer. However, and here I agree with one of the other reviewers, Mr. Morwood presents no cohesive arguments; he presents a jumble of half-baked ideas that he doesn't seem to have fleshed out. If you want to dispute Catholic teaching, there are better books with more integrity and internal consistency. Tomorrow's Catholic seems most like an attempt to justify some type of vague spirituality without any firm doctrine, which is of course not Catholic, and not coincidentally this vague spirituality lets the individual ultimately do whatever he wants as long as he feels it is good, e.g., contraception, sex outside the marriage of a man and a woman, abortion, etc. He doesn't explicitly state that these types of behaviors are permitted in his theology, but it certainly is the implication.

Clearly, the title of the book is a misnomer. Someone who attains to the beliefs in this book may be tomorrow's something, and it's not clear from the book exactly what that something is, but one thing he would definitely not be is tomorrow's Catholic. Anything but.

really 2 1/2 stars  Feb 23, 2003
The idea that the church is moving into a different epoch is a true one. My feeling is that the Church will come to grips with certain scientific ideas to broaden its mission. This book was good at describing some of those ideas BUT was not in any way original. I wouldn't call it trash, but I would say that I am glad I read Hans Kung and other theologians for their original content.
Challenging and thoughtful  Dec 10, 2002
I finished this book, flipped it over and started reading it again. Morwood's message spoke to me in a profound and exciting way: I've struggled to reconcile my call to Catholicism with church doctrines that appear irrelevant or affirmatively harmful; Morwood provides a framework for "re-imaging" God, Jesus and Church in a manner that resonates deeply for me. The church scandals and the relentless drumbeat of Apologist/conservative theology had me deeply depressed about the church and my role in it; this book has me feeling more hopeful and excited about my faith than I have in a long time.

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.
