Overview

Joanna Manning introduces readers to the growing polarization within Christianity and its relationship with the modern world. She warns against the ongoing retreat into fundamentalism and exclusivity and points the way toward inclusivity and compassion. She shows how John Paul II has joined forces with Prostestant fundamentalists to rein in the feminist movement and perpetuate male-only leadership through coercive and authoritarian uses of power.
