This book has, directly and indirectly, been referred to in a number of on-line discussions over the last few months and so when I saw it on the book table at Presbytery last month I decided it was worth a read.
IT was, okay. THere were times when I found that Tickle was over-simplifying both the historical and present analysis. With the result that the picture of what she was describing felt skewed (in favour of her thesis of course).
However I found her basic premise sound. And it was an intriguing look at where the Church Universal may be heading. Certainly worth a read. But not, IMO, a "must read".
