Yes, Gerry Hughes has some very keen insights, especially for a Catholic Jesuit priest; particularly for the time period of his writing. He was clearly hearing from God and was ahead of his time in many ways. I also appreciate the fact that he felt that he could effect change from within the institution, rather than feeling forced to separate himself from it.
