Steinfels's compilation exudes the spirit of James Joyce's adage that 'Catholicism means 'here comes everybody,'' celebrating the diversity within American Catholicism's already distinctive presence. Steinfels' contributors demonstrate the various ways in which faith, sometimes tenuously and other times with astonishing confidence, continues to move Catholics into American public life. * National Catholic Reporter * An intense, wide-ranging, and engaging conversation about the complexities of American Catholic civic engagement, one deeply grounded in historical and contemporary research data. Especially effective are the ten brief autobiographies, which both challenge and illuminate the claims made by the authors elsewhere in the volume. An especially timely collection of essays. Recommended. * CHOICE * It is far richer and more instructive than anything you're likely to read on the op-ed page or see on cable talk shows. * Commonweal Magazine * Timely, informative reading for all thinking Catholics! * America: The Jesuit Review of Faith & Culture * ... should be read by clergy, educators, and administrators who try to instill the values and principles of their Catholic faith into the people they are leading. * St. Anthony Messenger * A worthwhile and informative book, which should prompt Catholics to consider anew the intersections-or lack thereof-between faith and citizenship. * America: The Jesuit Review of Faith & Culture *
