The Boston Globe's Pulitzer Prize - winning coverage of clergy sexual abuse of minors in 2002 led to what few would hesitate to call the most significant scandal in the history of the Catholic Church in the United States. In contrast, Catholics themselves disagree about whether the voting records of some Catholic politicians or the particular policies and practices of Catholic institutions might be called scandalous. Such questions often both reflect and intensify divisions within the Catholic community.

Whether understood as negative public relations or as an action, attitude, law, or institution influencing another to sin, scandal affects the Catholic Church's proclamation of the good news of God's saving love. This makes theological reflection about scandal an essential aspect of being Catholic today. Failure to engage in this reflection risks truncating the tradition and obscuring the Good News.

This book invites this reflection in order to understand differences in perception and judgment, make appropriate courses of action more clear, and enable Catholics to participate more effectively and authentically as a faith community in public life.

From the Back Cover:

"a lucid and clear exposition of the many 'stumbling blocks' (scandals) for the Church and the individual Catholic, both in the internal life of the Church and in its mission to the world.  Senander's broad research is impressive, and she writes clearly, thus making the book accessible not only to the theological community but for all interested Catholics"--Charles Curran, Elizabeth Scurlock University Professor of Human Values, Southern Methodist University
