Review by Bobby Godsell
The American sociologist Peter Berger has produced, more or less, in every decade of his adult life an important book about religion. On the cover of one of these he put a picture of the place of great Italian beauty, Lake Como. Berger asserted that this place of beauty was reason enough to accept that our world had a creator whose design for our universe and our lives was good.
Denis Hurley was a courageous opponent of South Africa’s apartheid regime for 50 years, dubbed ‘an ecclesiastical Che Guevara’ by a South African official and ‘guardian of the light’ by Alan Paton. He was a champion of the reforms and ‘spirit’ of Vatican II, who was controversial for his views on birth control, married priests, and women’s ordination.
