Item Description...
The admired Best Catholic Writing series continues with contributions from Peggy Noonan, Robert Ellsberg, Pope Benedict XVI, Thomas Lynch, John Allen, and twenty-two other essayists, poets, novelists, scholars, and journalists. The selections bring vivid Catholic personalities to life (Dorothy Day, Flannery O'Connor, Pope John Paul II), address ethical issues and spiritual problems (torture, medical treatment at the end of life, the problem of suffering), and ask provocative questions (Are young Catholics embracing orthodoxy? Does the Church condemn evolution? Was Shakespeare a secret Catholic?). Notable essays in this year's edition include Kevin Cullen's profile of a former IRA terrorist now studying for the priesthood, Robert Lockwood's argument with the conventional wisdom about the Crusades, Colm Toibin's meditation on the public face of John Paul II, poetry by Mary Oliver and Seamus Heaney, and a Wall Street Journal portrait of nuns who finance their nursing homes by begging in the streets. The collection includes writing from the UK and Australia, as well as material first published on the Internet.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
fair collection  Apr 14, 2008
I skipped 2005, but I found 2006's collection to be of a much weaker caliber than the debut 2004. There is some good stuff in here, though none that really stands out as truly great.
Catholic means all inclusive  Jan 27, 2007
I really enjoyed this book. As a historian I really loved the essay on "Was Shakespeare a Catholic". I also really liked the essay on in praise of horizontal prayer. John Allen's essay on Globalization in the Catholic world really gives me perspective to our faith. Most of the writing is done by Jesuits, that proves that the SJ is the true educational arm of the catholic faith in the US.
Interesting, Entertaining and Insightful Collection of Short Works  Sep 18, 2006
While no book can completely present the entirety of the "greatest" of any collected subject, this book does a pretty good job. Because the texts included in this book are ultimately subject to the editor, it remains a personal assembly of appreciated writing - something Doyle alludes to in the introduction to the collection.

I believe that this is indeed a nice collection of short works that are entertaining as they are motivational and reflective. However, I refrain from giving it a full "5 stars" because I do not believe that the title of the book aligns itself completely with the scope of its contents. While this is indeed a good collection of Catholic Writing, it remains the "best" solely in the eyes of editor and publisher and therefore cannot possibly entertain the examination of all Catholic writing of the previous year - something noted by the editor. That said, I would recommend this book to just about anyone because the caliber of the writing is indeed good, but simply caution the reader to remember the subjective nature of the text selection and appreciate it as is.
