The Catholic Church has always been the object of serious scrutiny, but for all its flaws the church has, and will always have, benefits that cannot be found anywhere else:
Tradition and History
Stewardship and Mission
Saints and Sinners
In Remaining Catholic, Rev. Martin Pable has written a convincing, non-apologetic book for those who have left the church, those who are thinking of leaving, and those who would be the very last ones out the door. It is a celebration of what is irreplaceable about Catholicism, without denying or minimizing the very real problems the church has and the very real ways the church has let us down.
Rev. Martin Pable is professor of pastoral studies and counselling.
