9780268006396: American Catholic Experience: Theology

Spanning nearly 500 years, The American Catholic Experience describes the Catholic experience from the arrival of Columbus and the other European explorers to the present day. Jay P. Dolan discusses Catholicism as it spread across the New World, transforming - and being transformed by - the land and its people. The book traces the evolution of the urban ethnic communities by examining the vital contributions of the immigrant church to Catholicism. Finally, Dolan examines the controversy of the modern church and the extraordinary changes in the Catholic consciousness as it comes to grips with such contemporary social and theological issues as war and peace, the arms race, abortion, social justice, the ordination of women, and a married clergy.

About the Author:

Jay P. Dolan was on the faculty at the University of Notre Dame for 33 years. While at Notre Dame he founded the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism in 1975 and was the director of the center until 1993. As an American Catholic history specialist, he published a number of books in the field, including In Search of an American Catholicism: A History of Religion and Culture in Tension and The American Catholic Experience: A History from Colonial Times to the Present.

From Library Journal:

Dolan writes in a lively manner and synthesizes vast amounts of material with a flair reminiscent of Martin Marty at his best. Tracing the history of Ca tholicism in America from the Spanish missions to the 1983 pastoral letter ``The Challenge of Peace,'' Dolan (who considers himself a social historian) de scribes the life and faith of the ``little'' people without ignoring the intellectual currents that swirled about them. De spite some occasional choppiness and confusion engendered by the book's mixed chronological/topical organiza tion, this is an admirable work that will appeal to general readers and still serve for academic use; indeed, the footnotes are a treasure trove for students and scholars of American Catholic history. Highly recommended. D. Stephen Rockwood, Mt. St. Mary's Coll. Lib., Emmitsburg, Md.
