"What is occurring south of the Platte River, in a heretofore little—known diocese of approximately 83,000 Catholics, led by way of a guy who depends on church legislation and obedience, has been so loud and unpleasant, has so captured the interest of the secular media, has so pitted the normal inspiration of church opposed to the reformist one, has introduced forth such a lot of fees and countercharges, such a lot of editorials and counter—editorials, that one is tempted to imagine there's a few better goal, a few unseen hand, at work.” —Paul Hendrickson, the Washington Post
“Rachel Pokora’s Crisis of Catholic Authority is a ebook concerning the tenure of 2 successive Roman Catholic bishops within the Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska—Glennon Flavin (1976-1992) and Fabian Bruskowitz (1992–2012)—and their effect on a small yet decided staff of Catholics in that diocese who are looking to be a part of our imperfect Church. it really is an account of ways those Catholics have controlled to outlive the coercive misuse of liturgical and sacramental authority by means of these bishops and through a few of their clergy over the Catholic humans in that diocese. it's a unhappy observation on ecclesiastical abuse of well-meaning those that want to stay trustworthy to their Church. i like to recommend quandary of Catholic Authority since it could turn into the truth in different Catholic dioceses if their bishops and clergy fence themselves off from Vatican II and its reforms.” —Dr. Carol Rittner, R.S.M., distinct Professor of Holocaust & Genocide reviews, The Richard Stockton collage of recent Jersey
