THE FUTURE OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WITH POPE FRANCIS
Author: Garry Wills
Garry Wills argues that the history of the church throughout is a history of change. In this study, he describes the deep changes that have taken place in the church or are in the process of occurring.
These include the change from Latin, the abandonment of biblical literalism, the assertion and no assertion of infallibility, and the erosion of church patriarchy. In such developments we see the living church adapting itself to the new historical circumstances.
It is only by examining the history of the church that we can understand Pope Francis’s and the church’s challenges.
