IT\'\'S Time by Michael Morwood


This book,IT\'S TIME, is meant to put forth ideas which are Challenges to the Doctrine of the Faith.

        As an adult faith educator, Michael Morwood brings many years\'experience to bear on the crisis of faith confronting Christianity in general and Roman Catholicism in particular. His proposal is radical; discard doctrine shaped in the imagination of a heavenly deity who denied access to himself, replace it with a twenty-first century understanding of the Divine Presence premeating the universe,,and focus on Jesus as the human expression  of that Presence.

       IT\'S TIME challenges the outmodeled notion of God in scripture and Paul\'s transformation of Jesus into a cosmic figure, \"the Christ\",who gained access to the heavenly realms.

        Morwood maintains that doctrine  is used as a controlling mechanism to safeguard institutional claims of unique access  to a heavenly God,and the authority to speak on behalf of that God on important issues. This insistence that doctrine is certain, unchangeable knowledge doess not stand up to reasonable, open,scholarly examination.

        I know that many people will find the content of this book very challenging and may become fearful and back away, others who are clinging to the past will likely try to refute or deny some of it, however for those who come seeking, with acurious and opoen mind may find here a new way of looking at Jesus, the Good News, and find a credible way to follow Jesus in the tweny first century.

I highly recommend this to those who are seeking for a way to shape a faith and way of lofe that gives meaning and purpose to life and to participation in Church life.
