Readers looking for additional background on today’s statement by the U.S. bishops’ doctrine committee on “problematic aspects” in the writings of Vietnamese-American theologian Father Peter C. Phan of Georgetown University can find it in our September story when the examination of Father Phan’s book was first made public by the National Catholic Reporter. The following month, we also had a story on a talk given by Father Phan in Berkeley, Calif., in which he described the growth of Catholicism in the developing world and the importance of local culture among people embracing the Catholic faith in Africa and Asia.
