Michael Morwood began making waves in Catholic circles in the late 1990s with the publication of his book, Tomorrow’s Catholic. Catholic laity who had been struggling with ancient scriptural views of redemption found Morewood’s modern and scientifically informed perspective salvific. Unfortunately, the Catholic hierarchy deemed that perspective heretical. The book was banned and Father Morwood was silenced in 1998. Soon thereafter he ended his 29 years in the priesthood. Since then, Michael Morwood has become one of the most valued expositors of a naturalistic and evolutionary form of Christianity—for Catholics and beyond. See also his 2004 book, Praying a New Story.
