Pantheon Books. New York.723 pp
"I have spent my entire adult life engaged in a quest to understand not just who I am but how creatures like me came to be. That human evolved at all is a fluke. My own existence, like that of any other person's, is more than a fluke--it is a miracle. Out of the seven million or so egg cells my mother was born with, it was mine that ripened to be fertilized by my father. Against the usual odds, that fetus survived the vagaries of gestation to be born. And what about this creature, this person I would become? What does it mean to be born a mammal, wth an emotional legacy that make me capable of caring for others, breeding with the ovaries of a primate, possessing the mind of a human being?"--Preface.

The truth, we are told, will make us free. It is time to free Catholics, lay as well as clerical, from the pressures of deceit that are our quiet modern order form of papal sin. Paler, subtler, less dramatic than the sins castigated by Orcagna or Dante, these are the quieter corruptions of intellectual betrayal..."(p. 9). "...as when the gender of the apostles is adduced to support a male monopoly on the priesthood, after the ancient and real reason for that monopoly, a belief in female inferiority, has become unusable (see Chapter 7)' (p. 7).
