9781594713439: Choosing to Be Catholic: For the First Time or Once Again

First published in 2001, Choosing to Be Catholic has sold nearly 25,000 copies and maintains its status as a Catholic parish favorite. This new edition includes a fresh preface identifying important changes that author William J. O'Malley, S.J., perceives within the Church and in American culture during the past decade.

In this revised edition, Jesuit priest, master-teacher, and bestselling author William J. O'Malley, S.J., prompts seekers and skeptics alike to ask a new set of questions as they hunger and search for God. He demonstrates once again his uncanny ability to approach the human quest for God with refreshingly frank discourse as he sorts out the Hows, Whys, and So whats of being Catholic. With razor sharp focus, O'Malley offers a cultured and deeply personal argument for Catholicism to those curious about joining the Church, those wondering if they should stay, and those "vacationing" from it.

About the Author:

William J. O'Malley, S.J., is a legendary high school teacher who began his career as a Latin and English teacher at Brooklyn Prep in 1957. He has taught English and Theology at Fordham Prep in the Bronx since 1987 and in 1990 was awarded the F. Sadlier Dinger Award for outstanding contributions to religious education in America. A great advocate of the arts, O'Malley has written hundreds of articles, produced several videos, and directed ninety-nine plays and musicals. He is the author of several books, including Dare to Dream.

Review:

"William J. O'Malley, S.J., has been a leader in Catholic secondary and higher education, Christian spiritual writing and speaking, and fundamental faith formation in this country for the last 40 years. He is a Jesuit priest who cannot write an uninteresting sentence, and never fails to inspire."--Rev. James Martin, S.J., Author of Between Heaven and Mirth


"Because we have to ask many questions about being Catholic today, no one is better prepared to give us intelligent, honest, and faith-filled answers than O'Malley. Just when you think you have considered every perspective, O'Malley will give you another one--and it will be well worth considering!"--Richard Rohr, O.F.M. , Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico


"I have long respected O'Malley's work and find his clear, concise, and direct manner truly beneficial for pastoral leaders and those we serve. Choosing to Be Catholic is perfect for so many who seek deeper understanding of our faith."--Leisa Anslinger, Founder and Director, Catholic Life and Faith


"If you are a spiritual seeker, this book is for you. An experienced teacher and writer, O'Malley deftly guides the reader on a journey that tackles key issues of modern belief, such as the nature of the soul, the existence of God and the value of religion. Because it is a journey that challenges us to rethink our deepest values, it is one well worth taking." --Neil A. Parent, Author of A Concise Guide to Adult Faith Formation
