Overview

The Unhealed Wound: The Church, the Priesthood, and the Question of Sexuality by Eugene C. Kennedy

A psychologist, former priest, and one of the leading thinkers in Catholicism today addresses one of the most compelling yet undiscussed issues in the Church: human sexuality.

The Unhealed Wound is a penetrating and insightful study of the unresolved conflicts Catholics face regarding their sexuality and their spirituality—conflicts which become greater as they continue to go unaddressed within the Church. With an unflinching eye, Eugene Kennedy astutely yet respectfully takes to task a church that condemns birth control, marriage for priests, and sex outside of marriage, and he examines its formidable hierarchy, challenging clerics who uphold papal edicts unthinkingly.

Articulately postulating the human need not only to understand but celebrate our own sexuality, The Unhealed Wound will no doubt engender both controversy and heating dialogue amongst Catholics.
