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
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars America Magazine has Changed April 30, 2014
By JoAnn
I used to get America years ago and truly thought it was great. Now it is just OK the same as secular magazines, seemingly presenting mainline views only. I remember when it was not only a true source of Catholic beliefs but a mind and spiritual challenge to Catholics.
