Changing Orders by Paul Crittenden

Book Description

Radical changes swept through the Catholic Church in the 1960s, but the hopes and promises of the time fell away in the years that followed. There was upheaval too, in many universities from much the same time. Changing Orders is the story of a Sydney priest-academic engaged in a balancing act over the years of change: on the one hand, studies in philosophy and theology, dreams and hopes, concerns and disappointments, and the decision to resign from orders; on the other, a career in teaching, research, and administration especially in the long years of controversy surrounding the Department of General Philosophy at Sydney University.
