8vo - 20.5 x 13.5 cm.; 377 pp. Fr. Robinson is an Oratorian and the founder of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri in Toronto. From the back cover: "The first aim of this book is to examine the origins and present day influence of modernity . . . The second aim of the book is to show that the sources of a genuine liturgical renewal are to be found in a heightened sense of the centrality of the Mass and a return to a theology compatible with the Cathechism of the Catholic Church." Sixteen page bibliography and a 15 page general index. Very slight shelf wear to the cover edges, otherwise the book is as-new and appears to have never been used. The subtitle "Walking to Heaven Backwards" comes from John Henry Newman. "We advance to the truth by experience of error; we succeed through failures. We know not how to do right by having done wrong . . . Such is the process by which we succeed; we walk to Heaven backwards."
