What does it suggest to be—or to were raised—Catholic in the US this present day, now that officially nonpracticing Catholics outnumber the memberships of the other unmarried denomination? Catholic Lives, modern America is a suite of educated and lively essays concentrating on Catholic lay practices no longer mostly famous or, from time to time, formally sanctioned. For the bold array of students and writers amassed right here, being Catholic isn't easily an issue of going to confession or attending Mass, and Catholicism’s contributions to American cultural identification stay open to question.
Edited and with an advent by way of Thomas J. Ferraro, Catholic Lives, modern America bargains a ceremonial dinner of essays and interviews, straight away refined and obtainable, treating American Catholic lives and legacies with compassion and flair.

Contributors. Patrick Allitt, Paul Crowley, Thomas J. Ferraro, James T. Fisher, Paul Giles, Mary Gordon, Stanley Hauerwas, Frank Lentricchia, Robert A. Orsi, Camille Paglia, David Plante, Richard Rodriguez, Kathy Rudy, Andrew Sullivan, Mary Jo Weaver
