Objectionable cover (letter)

Objectionable cover (letter)

Fr Edward P. Evans

I strongly object to the cover of Australian Theologies (see April AD2000 review). What is the idea of printing a stark naked Christ on the cross on the book's cover? If a naked Mahommed were used as an illustration, the author might have his throat slit and the press and books burnt.

I protested about this cover to both the Catholic Weekly (Sydney) that published a cover picture with its review (23 October 2000) and to St Paul's Publications that printed the book. I received no answer from either.
