Editorial Reviews

America is a national Catholic weekly magazine published by Jesuits in the United States. Founded in 1909, America has received dozens of awards for its coverage of religion, politics and the arts. In 2011 it was awarded Best Magazine in the General Excellence category by the Catholic Press Association. According to its mission statement, America is "a media communications ministry that seeks to interpret the world for the church and the church for the world." From the beginning America has been the work of Jesuits from across the United States. John Wynne, S.J., the first editor, lasted only a few months, but the editorial formula he devised lasts to this day--editorial comment, short articles and reviews of arts and letters. America retains a loyal readership, especially among the hiererchy and other leaders and managers of the Catholic Church in the United States, lay and religious. During the post-Vatican II period, the editors have consistently promoted conciliar reform, but they have struck a balance between the extremes of liberal and conservative opinion in the reforming Church, acting as a bridge for Church dialogue. The balance favored by these editors has given the magazine a reputation for temperateness that its founding editor did not always share. But such steadiness has enabled the magazine to fulfill throughout the twentieth century the vision of its founder, who wrote in the first issue: "The object, scope and character of this review are sufficiently indicated in its name--America: A Catholic Review of the Week." The Kindle Edition of America contains all articles found in the print edition plus occasional Web-only culture reviews.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing some of the important features of the paper copy February 20, 2014
By Terry K
I found the online magazine lacking some of the properties of the paper copy such as an inability to browse the index easily for the articles that I found most interesting. And as they say a picture is worth a thousand words and the online edition has none. I ordered the print copy instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Jesuit perpective August 20, 2015
Contemporary and faithful examination and prevention of life in the American Catholic Church. Current ecclesial events reported in a little more detail and more accurately than in secular press. The book reviews are worth the price. An for preachers and any dedicated to the word of God, an excellent discussion of Sunday readings.

I believe during these times in our church and in our world we need honest and current news that gives us hope. I believe that the America magazine accomplishes these goals. I hope that we can again realize that we are to be servants of God and do his will!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, thoughtful magazine October 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
A great resource on American Catholicism, with thoughtful essays guided by genuine biblical insight. Highly recommended for keeping engaged with issues facing religious persons in the U.S. today. The issue on Pope Francis was especially excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coming back to a familiar publication... January 15, 2014
Has been a way to broaden my understanding and love for the Roman Catholic Church,through the devoted and lucid view of the Company of Jesus. I have read it and subscribed for many years intermingled with other similar publications like the Chilean "Mensaje"-founded by ST.Alberto Hurtado,S.J..-
