Review:

"In this thoughtful and wide-ranging collection of essays, eight women and one man set out to explain and defend the Catholic Church's teaching on sex, reproduction, priestly ordination, and family. Bachiochi, a lawyer and theologian who edited and contributed to the compilation, opens by calling herself an unlikely candidate for the project because she once 'identified with a radical feminist contingent and was adamantly anti-Catholic.' As she learned more about Catholicism's teachings, she writes, she decided that the church needed a way to explain them as 'pro-woman.' The essays she assembled seek to show that the church's teachings free rather than oppress women. Other contributors to the volume include Sister Sara Butler, a theologian and former proponent of women's ordination, who wrote the essay on the priesthood, and economist Jennifer Roback Morse, whose essay looks at marriage. Given that this book challenges a popular view of Catholicism as antiwoman, it will be welcomed by those who support the church's teaching; readers who disagree might still find its perspective provocative.
