Bare Ruined Choirs: Doubt, Prophecy, and Radical Religion
Dell Pub. [1974, 1974 - 272 pages
"The Catholic Church is in disarray. A crisis of authority followed on the false optimism of the Second Vatican Council, just as it did on the empty hopes of President Kennedy's 'Camelot.' In Bare Rusined Choirs, Mr. Wills takes the confusion of the Church as a model of institutional breakdown, not only in religion but in the state."--Page 4 of cover.
