The paradox of being Catholic in America is explored with grace and economy by one of the country''s most influential and controversial theologians.
From the Publisher:
Christians are a people out of place. Their true home is with God, though in mortal life, they are alien citizens. No one has explored this dilemma more poignantly than eminent theologian Richard Neuhaus in his final work, American Babylon. Assessing how Catholics can contend with the decadence, consumerism, and impiety of American society, American Babylon is essential reading for all Christians.
Annotation:
For many, Western society deserves the pejorative "Babylon." So it is for Richard John Neuhaus, the once-liberal Lutheran minister who became a neoconservative Roman Catholic priest, and whose many books and other writings made him a leading voice on the Christian conservative side of the culture wars. In the last book he wrote before he died, AMERICAN BABYLON, Father Neuhaus proposes the idea that Christians are strangers in a consumer-goods-obsessed, openly immoral America. He offers ways for them to live their lives in a world they are not a part of and to be citizens while remaining Christian.

Praise

"...AMERICAN BABYLON displays Neuhaus in all his virtues--elegantly argued and written, fair-minded and with a formidable range of reference--making the important point that politics without an anchor in a public morality can quickly slip away in dark directions." - Charles Morris 04/12/2009
