The Catholic Revolution: New Wine, Old Wineskins, and the Second Vatican Council

Synopsis

"Few scholars in our period have clarified the profound changes that have occurred in American Catholicism as well as Andrew Greeley has. This is a stunning and genuinely new interpretation of those radical shifts in Catholic thought post Vatican II."--David Tracy, University of Chicago

"Greeley tackles the big question of how the Roman Catholic Church could be in such deep trouble just a generation removed from its biggest reform. In this timely review of the last forty years, he reveals his mastery of both church politics and popular religious feelings. once again he shows us why millions of American Catholics trust him to be their voice."--Mike Hout, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Berkeley
