Editorial Reviews


The book...does throw a useful light on the role of Catholicism within American society as a whole; and in general on the state of the Church in an exceptionally difficult time of transition.>>>>

Pay attention to this book. It contains much of great worth. It will be a useful source...and it will become more valuable with time.>>>>

An important and challenging book by one of a new generation of Catholic intellectuals.>>>> (Novak, Michael)

...might serve as the catalyst for a new discussion of the future of Catholicism in America...>>>> (Neuhaus, Richard John)

...worth reading....The great merit of Varacalli's book is that it draws attention to the impact of the church staff on the social teachings and policies of the bishops....>>>>
