This book made me think of so many things. Why can't women be priests? The rationalization he uses is so simple and so logical. Everything is to the point with no b.s. It was so good.

Great book. Matthew Dalton is a unique kind of hero. He's kind of like the Batman of religion, intense, damaged, and a little desperate to make his life right. This is a good read for modern church issues.
