With this book Monica Migliorino Miller presents a reorientation of the debates about equality, fairness, and the sharing of power in the church, revealing that some prevalent arguments among Catholics today are based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the meaning and role of church authority. Real authority in the church, Miller argues, is based in God's nuptial covenant with believers, one in which gender necessarily plays a significant, differentiating role. Based in scripture, but appealing as well to psychology, anthropology, and sociology, "Sexuality and Authority in the Catholic Church" is a balanced, serious contribution that will enlighten clergy and laity alike.
