About "For Christ's Sake"
In this new book, Bishop Geoffrey Robinson, controversial author of Confronting Power and Sex in the Catholic Church, pulls no punches in his effort to go beyond merely 'managing' sexual abuse in the Church. He seeks to identify, uproot and eradicate abuse - and the poor response to it - by addressing the causes: without limitation. He leads up to a call for nothing less than a Council of the whole Church to confront the issues raised in the book, within which he insists that the laity must play a major role. In the current social environment, that includes the Royal Commission into Institutionalised Sexual Abuse of Children, this is the book that had to happen. This is the book designed to move the Church back into the hands of the millions of shocked and bewildered Catholics throughout the world who are saying: enough is enough.
