Michael Crosby

Can Religious Life Be Prophetic?

"Michael Crosby is claiming the tradition--and calling forth a critical mass for a religious life refounded in the spirit of the Gospels. Don't stone this prophet. Read him."
--Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico.

"Michael Crosby's "Can Religious Life Be Prophetic" is the brave work of a truly committed and deeply honest brother religious. This book about the prophetic dimension of religious life is itself phophetic. It makes us face the question of whether we really are phophetic or not and why? My recommendation: Every religious community in the country should study this book together before they even think of making another major decision."
--Joan Chittister, OSB.

"This is a courageous book, written with integrity and honesty. Michael Crosby asks the questions many are afraid to ask and exposes issues that are painful to look at."
--Barbara Fiand, author of" Living the Vision: Religious Vows in an Age of Change"

"Faced today with a world in turmoil and a Church entrenched in denial, nothing short of a daring prophetic vision is likely to sustain our credibility. Michael Crosby elucidates the vision with clarity, courage and conviction."
--Diarmuid O'Murchu, author of "Poverty, Celibacy and Obedience: A Radical Option for Life.
