Michael Davies: An Evaluation

In Michael Davies: An Evaluation, Cambridge-educated translator John S. Daly puts the scholarship of the late Michael Davies under the spotlight.

What emerges from systematic comparison with statements of the Magisterium and the greatest theologians must destroy Davies's credibility in the eyes of every serious reader. Michael Davies: An Evaluation remains not only an unanswered indictment of Davies as a Catholic scholar, but a standing refutation of the entire ecclesiology of those who believe it possible for an orthodox Catholic to reject the doctrinal errors and reformed rites spawned by Vatican II without calling into doubt the legitimacy of recent papal claimants and the validity of the new sacraments.
This book was hailed by the celebrated English parish priest Fr. Oswald Baker (1915-2004), who was himself a dedicatee of Michael Davies' Cranmer's Godly Order, as one of the two most important books to have emerged from the post-Vatican II crisis in the Catholic Church.
