Have American Catholics produced any creative and theological responses to the issues and forces that have confronted them over the last three centuries or has little worthwhile been added to the classical European formulations by citizens of the New World? In his introduction to this collection of original writings, Patrick Carey argues that American Catholics, from John Carroll to John Courtney Murray, have exhibited a fresh, vigorous ability to engage the great religious questions of their time. Whether they were responding to the Enlightenment or to the Romantic mood, to Neo-Scholasticism, Modernism or the problems of social justice, Catholic Americans have produced a stimulating theological commentary that is worth examining. This book has been designed to make that tradition on American Catholic thought more accessible. Included are the writings of leading figures: John England, Orestes Brownson, Isaac Hecker, Martin J. Spalding, John Ireland, John Hughes, Dorothy Day, Virgil Michel, and others. Introduced by a major essay that traces the development of Catholic thought in America, this work provides an outstanding resource to students of American Catholicism. Patrick W. Carey is associate professor of religious studies at Marquette University in Milwaukee. 272 pages. Your order on its way to you by the next business day!
