The Theology of Fear is the title of a new book by Father Emmett Coyne, a Jesuit Roman Catholic priest.
Having grown up as a Roman Catholic and graduating from a Jesuit college, I’m familiar with the issues Father Coyne raises in his excellent, well-written book.
Here are some of Father Coyne’s concerns:
- He’s disturbed that Jesus’ love for humans has taken a back seat to the Vatican’s desire to preserve its political power at all costs.
- He rightly points out the Vatican is the only religious-political entity on the planet.
