9780060660383: The desolate city: Revolution in the Catholic Church

Harper and Row, San Francisco, 1986. Hardcover with dust jacket. Stated First American edition. (ISBN 0-06-066038-4) Owner's name written on inside front board. Good copy, fair dust jacket."Muggeridge pulls no punches. The book is written with.... Passion, always under the control of reason.... [She] is a thoroughly convinced Roman Catholic and a tenacious fighter for what she loves. Anne Roche Muggeridge is a Catholic 'Contra'...opposing the Modernist revolutionaries who have taken over most of the Catholic Church." - Kenneth Baker, S.J., Editor, "Homiletic and Pastoral Review." In this passionate, but carefully reasoned book, Anne Roche Muggeridge assesses the controversial issues facing the Catholic Church today. "The Desolate City," she writes, "is an attempt to explain the complete and extraordinary rapid collapse of the Catholic world in which I grew up, a society still in 1960 at the peak of confidence and unity.... I argue that a revolution is taking place within the Roman Catholic Church, a classic revolution in the pattern of those that from time to time convulse and transform secular human societies. I try to trace the pedigree of the controlling idea behind the present revolution, which, I contend, is that view of authority that has variously been called that Protestant principle, the anti-dogmatic or anti-hierarchical principle, or liberalism.... The Catholic Church has always resisted the Protestant principle of authority, basing its opposition on both universal natural law and the scriptural account of the Fall of Man. The appeal from private judgment alone has been rejected by the Church whenever it has appeared, from the Acts of the Apostles to the Modernist movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, which attempted to adapt Catholic beliefs to developments in science.... Religion.
