✏Back to the Future of the Roman Catholic Church Book Summary : This book explores the notion that the Roman Catholic Church risks imploding from within as a result of its inflexibility towards movements in favor of reasonable change and modernization. Attendance at Sunday Mass has dramatically decreased; the loss of the youth in these churches is a case in point. At the same time, the lack of vocations to the priesthood and religious life is at crisis proportions as is further evidenced by the closing of parishes and the curtailing of religious services including the rising phenomenon of "priest-less Parishes." Young men today--even if they aspire to the priesthood--experience both unrest and rejection at the continued demand of the Church's leadership that priests commit themselves to the lifelong discipline of celibacy. Back to the Future of the Roman Catholic Church addresses the root causes of the various developments that have provoked discontent with Church policies and defections from parish life on the part of those who appear to have lost faith in their hierarchical leaders at the highest levels of Church governance. Finally, this book probes the ways in which the Church can emerge from its crises to become, once again, faithful to its origins as founded by Jesus Christ.

✏Going Back to the Future Book Summary : It was Edmund Burke, the British Statesman and philosopher, who said that those who don't know history are destined to repeat it. In this book, at least as far as educational leadership is concerned, Robert Palestini helps ensure that we do not fall intothe trap of ignoring history. Dr. Palestini rightly points out that effective leaders have been utilizing the same leadership behavior for centuries. He uses this evidence to support the perennial and lasting impact of situational leadership theory whichposits that no single way of leading works in all situations. Rather, appropriate leadership behavior depends on the circumstances at a given time. For centuries effective managers have been diagnosing the situation, identifying the leadership style or behavior that will be most effective, and then determining whether they can implement the required style. At the turn of the last century, the editors of Life Magazine identified the 100 leaders who they believed had the most impact of the global society during the second millennium. Using this list as a backdrop, Palestini chose ten of the twentieth century individuals on the list to explore what it was about their respective leadership behavior that allowed them to have such a significant and lasting impact on our society. When we examine the leadership behavior of the ten great leaders profiled in this book, we will most certainly find that the most effective of them operated out of all five leadership frames--the lesson learned being that if one wishesto hone one's current leadership skills or become a future leader, one can learn to do so by reflectively looking to the leaders of the past.

✏The Future of the Catholic Church with Pope Francis Book Summary : The New York Times bestselling historian takes on a pressing question in modern religion—will Pope Francis embrace change? Pope Francis, the first Jesuit pope and the first from the Americas, offers a challenge to his church. Can he bring about significant change? Should he? Garry Wills, the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian, argues provocatively that, in fact, the history of the church throughout is a history of change. In this brilliant and incisive study, Wills describes the deep and serious changes that have taken place in the church or are in the process of occurring. These include the change from Latin, the growth and withering of the ecclesiastical monarchy, the abandonment of biblical literalism, the assertion and nonassertion of infallibility, and the erosion of church patriarchy. In such developments we see the living church adapting itself to the new historical circumstances. As Wills contends, it is only by examining the history of the church that we can understand Pope Francis's and the church's challenges. From the Hardcover edition.
