9781932589634: Catholicism and America: Challenges and Prospects (Faith & Reason: Stuydies in Catholic Theology & Philosophy)

This book goes behind the headlines on the Catholic Church in the United States to explore some of the principles and philosophical sources to which Popes, Bishops, Priests, Religious, and laity appeal when they challenge American culture and society on moral and social issues. Rarely do the media discuss the "dictatorship of relativism” criticized by Pope Benedict XVI, and the reasons he gives for why such relativism undermines the moral foundations of religious freedom, tolerance, and democracy. The distinguished authors in this book offer clear and compelling arguments for taking these concerns seriously. Religious liberty in the United States has enabled Catholic immigrants to build up vast numbers of schools, universities, seminaries, hospitals, clinics, orphanages, and parishes. The authors suggest the responsibility Catholics have to learn and live the resources of wisdom, morality, and holiness in the two millennial history of Catholicism in order to renew and strengthen both the Church and American culture today.

Review:

This splendid collection of essays is a treasure trove of insight into the unique relationship between the Catholic religion and American culture. Father Lamb has brought together a brilliant galaxy of thinkers to explore the challenges that lie ahead for religious liberty, higher education, and the integration of faith and reason in what Walker Percy called the 'Christ-forgetting, Christ-haunted' United States. --Mary Ann Glendon

We usually think of 'American Challenges' to the Church. Too rarely do we hear of how revelation itself is addressed to reason and on that basis claims attention and proper place within a civilization or culture. This issue becomes critical when the culture and the political elite that promotes it carries the people into positions that conflict with good sense, reason, and indeed the commandments themselves. The Catholic intellectual tradition is well represented in these frank and well-reasoned considerations by some of the leading thinkers and public opinion of our time. The crucial point is that Catholicism is a religion of intelligence and presents itself that way. From this basis it makes its claim before the transcendent order. These essays are welcome initiatives to remind a culture in crisis that what is largely defending reason in the public order today is largely nothing less than Catholicism itself. --James V. Schall, SJ, Georgetown University
