The book was widely reviewed with an extract published in the Australian edition of Time magazine. Reviewer Edmund Campion said that the chapter on the Second Vatican Council was the best comprehensive account of the Council that he had read anywhere. The book went into a second printing and, although out of print now, is still held by many libraries in Australia and extracts are still often copied for students. It has had considerable influence both among Catholics and the wider community.
