Leon Podles has his finger on something very important. A symptom of the problem Podles has discovered is this: To be more precise, masculine men have a problem with Christianity, at least in its Western forms. In Eastern Orthodox churches at least according to Podles men participate in services and other religious activities as much or more than do women, while in Roman Catholic and Protestant churches the women outnumber the men, sometimes by wide margins. Podles does not believe sociology can explain this disparity. Podles attributes this change to St. In response, he tells us, men have done their best to avoid churches, sublimating their religious instincts into sports, soldiering, fraternal organizations, and even fascism. Podles thinks this pattern will persist indefinitely and that men will continue to attend church only grudgingly. The Church Impotent breaks new ground in identifying and explaining this phenomenon. For this reason, the book has received considerable attention and praise. He is more likely to have had access to the Latin works of the unquestionably orthodox St. Bridal mysticism can be found in the patristic period in both the Greek and Latin Churches, and has its roots in Scripture especially in the Song of Songs and 2 Corinthians If bridal mysticism is responsible for scaring men away from the Church, then it should have done so much earlier than the twelfth century, and in the Eastern Churches as well. Podles has constructed his argument on the premises that 1 if Christianity is not attracting men it must be because it is feminized, and 2 Christianity is not inherently feminized. He can hardly acknowledge the possibility that attracting men has been a problem throughout Church history. We have no idea whether men in antiquity showed a greater commitment to Christianity than did women, although...

Tags Philosophy and Methodology. Usually I review a book by getting into the swing of things at once. What is the book's central thesis? But, faced with Mr. Podles's excellent study, I must confront a preliminary issue: Prima facie, the case against doing so is strong. Podles argues from theological premises, and theology far exceeds my competence. He maintains that, since the Middle Ages and increasingly in modern times, the Christian Church has become "feminized. By this he means that men have, in large numbers, abandoned the church: Why has this phenomenon come about? It is by no means intrinsic to religion. During its first thousand years, Christianity was at least as much masculine as feminine. Further, the feminization that arouses our author's concern is not present in the Orthodox Church, nor is it to be found in Judaism. Here, I venture to disagree with Mr. Is this not, then, a theological book far outside my province? I think we can see the relevance of the work to the social and political concerns of interest to readers of this journal if we pose a question to Mr. Suppose that you are right: What is the matter with that? Podles's answer would in part be theological: But a good deal of his response transcends purely theological concerns. He thinks that the feminization of the Church threatens disastrous social consequences. His reasons for thinking this precisely locate the relevance of his book to us. Podles embeds his account of feminization of the Church in a far-reaching theory of masculinity and femininity. For our author, male and female signify much more than biological facts. Each term denotes one side of a fundamental polarity. As our author sees matters, "the female is the norm from which the male must be differentiated. The basic pattern...

National Catholic Reporter "This volume will certainly invite an important discussion.

Hello, my name is Matthew James Christoff. Welcome to the New Emangelization Project. Today I am speaking with Dr. Podles has a Ph. To find out more about Dr. Podles and his work please visit podles. The Feminization of Christianity. I thank you for writing it. For too 1, years, men have been weaker in their faith, at least in western Christianity, than women have. What has happened in recent centuries is that western civilization has become more and more secularized as first men left the Church and started pursuing their purposes in life elsewhere. But now women are falling out of the Church also. This has, of course, caught the notice of many clerics including Pope Francis who says we must find a role for women which is true. Why do you think that is? There are other reasons, too. One reason is that the men are difficult to deal with. Women have been, at least until recently, more susceptible to clerical direction and men have been rebellious. Also, the clergy of all churches tend to think of the church they think first of the clergy. Of course, the Catholic clergy is still exclusively male and therefore they think the Church is all male. They forget that they are only one tenth of one percent of the Church and I strongly suspect that in the Catholic Church there is portion of the clergy are uncomfortable to heterosexual men. They are gay and do not like to be around heterosexual men. When I was a federal investigator I often interviewed clergy who were references for people we were doing investigations for. I was not extremely aggressive. They never expect people to challenge them. How did they know this person? How long have you known this person? Simple questions like...
