The American Catholic Church has received much negative press in recent years, from priest abuse scandals to the investigation of nuns. But the heart of the church runs much deeper than these challenges, and the Catholic faith in America continues to evolve. American Catholics in Transition paints a vibrant picture of the diverse church today, outlining changes in the past as well as looking toward continuity and change in the future. The book looks at provocative topics facing Catholics today, including views on church authority, women’s’ role in the church, how Catholicism interacts with politics, how millennials and Hispanics are shaping the church, and more.
