With people of different faiths striving for mutual understanding this symposium should help to clear the climate for broader appreciation of what makes Catholics what they are. Father Gleason (To Love Is Christ, Grace) has here put together with a group of masterful collaborators a study of the areas of Catholic life which cause the most difficulties for non-Catholics. The book begins with the tracing of the development of the Protestant stereotype of the Catholic Church. It then takes up the Catholic Church and politics, Catholics and corruption, authority and private judgment, the study of the scripture, the Catholic Church and birth control, censorship and man and woman within the Church. The array of authors is formidable. Any fair minded reader will see the efforts as reasoned analyses of core misunderstandings. In the of Other could well become a key book to effect better understanding of Catholicism among Catholics as well as non-Catholics.
