Product Overview

Some of America?s most extraordinary celebrities, artists, and thinkers reveal what they believe Catholicism is?and what it should be

In this illuminating collection that redefines an ancient institution in the most contemporary of terms, human-rights activist Kerry Kennedy asks thirty-seven American Catholics to speak candidly about their own faith?whether lost, recovered, or deepened?and about their feelings regarding the way the Church hierarchy is moving forward.

?Has something to say to almost every Catholic, or even one-time Catholic, who cracks open its pages. . . . One finishes the book feeling grateful for [Kennedy?s] subjects? honesty and moved in a hundred different ways by what they reveal of their aspirations and struggles.??National Catholic Reporter

?Revealing . . . offers an unusually intimate view of how much being raised Catholic shapes the identity of many prominent Americans, but also how much tension many feel with the institutional church.??Boston Globe
