Being Catholic Now : Prominent Americans Talk about Change in the Church and the Quest for Meaning

Description

Some of America's most extraordinary celebrities, artists, and thinkers reveal what they believe Catholicism is-and what it should be In this illuminating collection that redefines an ancient institution in the most contemporary of terms, human-rights activist Kerry Kennedy asks thirty-seven American Catholics to speak candidly about their own faith-whether lost, recovered, or deepened-and about their feelings regarding the way the Church hierarchy is moving forward. "Has something to say to almost every Catholic, or even one-time Catholic, who cracks open its pages. . . . One finishes the book feeling grateful for [Kennedy's] subjects' honesty and moved in a hundred different ways by what they reveal of their aspirations and struggles."-National Catholic Reporter "Revealing . . . offers an unusually intimate view of how much being raised Catholic shapes the identity of many prominent Americans, but also how much tension many feel with the institutional church."-Boston Globe
