Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: In recent decades a war has been waged within the Catholic Church between traditionalists and those who want to drain its teachings and institutions of much of their meaning. This is the story of that struggle, told through the life of a leading combatant, Cardinal George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney, Australia, and the leading Churchman "down under", who has spent much of his adult life battling attempts to, in his words, "trivialize Jesus Christ".

George Pell, a brilliant student in Rome and Oxford, was chosen by Pope John Paul II to be Archbishop of Melbourne and then Sydney. Pell's unprecedented double appointment reflects the fact that the Pope sees him as a vital front-line figure in the fight to reform the Church. Author Tess Livingstone visited Rome and Oxford and interviewed over fifty people, including many of Pell's critics, in researching her book. It contains a wealth of information about Pell that will surprise both his enemies and his supporters.
