    "Proud academics and a humble preacher" This is condensed version of a much longer review available here. Formally, what Fr Carr is trying to show is that materialism thinks in what he calls three dimensions whilst faith thinks in four dimensions. This follows from the theory of evolution – humans do not perceive what is, but what enables them to go about their business of finding food, shelter, and mates. Materialists lose something, and Catholics also lose something when they allow their faith to be dictated wholly by pragmatic considerations. However really the book is about the extraordinary division in American life between liberal academics and conservative Christians. Fr Carr opens with the description of Christian judicial nominees as “Neanderthals” by a liberal senator. This leads us to what I suspect is the real point. Fr Carr was a naval sonar technician before entering the priesthood. He didn’t go to university. In modern society, university education is a... More > requirement for almost every profession, and almost all the middle class acquire degrees. There is a deep divide between those so privileged, and those on the outside. Fr Carr concludes that we need to turn away from the world of prestige and high tuition. As a PhD student myself, I cannot entirely agree with this. I would say that we must seek learning for learning’s sake, and not because it often leads to worldly success. We must recapture the universities, which were invented by the Church, for the Church. Something also needs to be done, in America, about the financial arrangements. In conclusion a very fruitful and thought-provoking book. Malcolm McLean< Less
