Item Description...
Overview
According to a recent estimate, seventeen million baptized American Catholics are inactive. Whether this alienation is the result of a gradual slipping away, an incident of mistreatment, or simple uncertainty about one's faith or beliefs, there is hope for those who are looking to make peace with the church. In A Faith Interrupted, authors Alice Camille and Joel Schorn serve as compassionate mediators in a conversation with disaffected Catholics, providing a place for people to clarify what went wrong and identify options for reconciliation and reunion. This book not only explores some of the reasons why Catholics leave the church and offers guidance for those contemplating a return, but also outlines basic principles of the faith, looks at key elements that make up the Catholic identity, and simplifies issues of theology and church teaching. Also included are helpful tips on finding the right parish and using spiritual tools to arrive at a better understanding of what one wants from the church. A Faith Interrupted seeks to help readers heal past hurts and find hope for the future.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
It Delivers  Mar 28, 2007
This 175 page book honestly looks at the reasons people leave the Church but focuses more on reasons to return to the Church. The first 38 pages deal with general alienation and a few specific cases focusing on issues of Faith, the institution of the Church, and the community within the Church. The next 18 pages cover Catholicism and the Church as a place of prayer, grace, and the Sacraments. The remaining 120 pages more practically detail the Church as a place of prayer, grace, and the Sacraments. I recommend reading "A Faith Interrupted" to get focused on possibly returning to the Church.
 
Not What I expected  Nov 29, 2006
As a Catholic that is no longer practicing because of conflicts with the teachings and practices of the Church, I was disappointed with this book. I was hoping for a book that would honestly look at the reasons people leave. Instead it listed a few cases of alienated Catholics then immediately went into what you "should" do to get your faith back. It assumed that the Bible and the teachings of the Church were absolute truths.
