Eight years ago Tony Flannery was withdrawn from his ministry by his religious congregation, the Redemptorists, under orders from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF). The CDF took issue with some of his writings, saying they were heretical. He was forbidden to perform priestly duties, or to write any articles or to give interviews.
Since then he has had a greater degree of freedom of thought and action. From the Outside is the result. Dealing with the challenges facing the Church the book goes much deeper and also deals with Church doctrine. Many fundamental Church doctrines date from the early centuries of Christianity. This book outlines what needs to be changed, both in the content and language of doctrine, and in the images and metaphors used. Change is needed.
