Cozzens, a priest who is also a writer, understands that the crisis facing the Catholic Church because of the wide-ranging sexual abuse scandals bears on the 'sacramental character of the church; its mission of liberation in the 'way of Jesus'; the role of the laity and particularly the role of women; the future of the ministry; [and] the church's structures.' He concentrates on the conscience and work of lay persons in trying to amend the problems that allowed for the abuse. Cozzens does not go much into practical or administrative recommendations for responding to the calls by lay persons for changes in the Catholic Church. He writes about the appropriateness and desirability of the ideas and role lay persons are calling for. Such lay persons appear more than any others to be affected by the scandalous behavior of many priests and concerned about the future of the Catholic Church and the spirituality it professes to embody. The author is a respected and compelling voice for the value of the substantive involvement of lay persons in overcoming the church's troubles.
