This book looks at the current crisis of the Catholic Church in Ireland (post Ferns, Ryan, and Murphy Reports), and worldwide. O'Hanlon discusses how the vision of the Church as the People of God in the Second Vatican Council failed to be implemented. He argues that we need to deepen this vision for today which will allow the full participation of the lay faithful. Jesuit theologian Gerry O'Hanlon is a staff member of the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice and Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at the Milltown Institute.
