Just Catholic: The Future is Now is a collection of essays written over a period of eight years by Phyllis Zagano, world expert on women in the diaconate. Zagano addresses an astounding range of topics that many in the Church fear to raise. She pulls no punches, yet charitably and intelligently argues for a more ‘just’ Church.

Just Catholic covers many of the confronting issues that face the Catholic Church today, yet it is not a heavy read. Zagano is a skilful writer, deploying the brevity of an accomplished communicator and scholar, with writing that is fresh and engaging. Just when you would assume you might know where she might land on an issue, there are surprises aplenty ahead!

Just Catholic is brimming with clever anecdotes, accurate historical tidbits and – most importantly – Gospel justice. It is a must-read for every faith-filled Catholic who yearns for ecclesial reform, and is a book you’ll find hard to put down.
