Category: Religion: Apologetics

Author: Otto Piechowski

Copyright/published Year: 2000 by The Center for Lrng

ISBN: 1560775785

Binding: Paperback

Since the end of the Vatican Council, questions have been raised about issues of authority, obedience, and freedom within the Church. New methodologies of scriptural analysis and increasing sophistication in the social sciences have sometimes been employed in public controversy and have generated private debate on the nature and source of Church authority, as well as the degree and kind of obedience expected of the people of God. The goal of this book is to look at the need for authority and obedience, the role of personal freedom in the context of obedience, how structures of authority have developed, and how they currently function within the Church. This text includes an overview of authority, obedience, and freedom, applications of freedom's need for authority and obedience, and the relationship between authority and service. Discussion questions follow each section. Such questions include, for example, "When in your experience was authority needed to decide between a number of good options for dealing with a community need?" and "Do you agree with the general principle that the Catholic intellectuals do not have the right to freedom of speech within their teaching specialty, but only a right to practice their scholarly discipline? Why or why not?"
