Archbishop John R. Quinn takes a look at the problem of excessive centralization in the Catholic Church-a problem acknowledged by theological giants such as Yves Congar and Joseph Ratzinger. Using the Eastern Churches as an example, he suggests a return to truly traditional structures as the solution to the problem. Book jacket.
