Reviews of God's New Man

The Age (9/10/05) reviewer Barney Zwartz described the book as a “generous-Spirited appraisal ... I say generous because Collins... was hounded by the CDF under the autocratic Ratzinger, but this does not colour his discussion ... Indeed the book is intelligent, perceptive and readable – much more insightful than a similar book by the much-admired American Vatican-watcher, John Allen.”
