Item Description...
Why does the Catholic Church take a politically conservative stance on some issues, such as abortion and birth control, while on others, such as social programs and nuclear policy, it resembles the left? Why do some Catholic groups reject the legitimacy of Church hierarchy and yet choose to remain within its fold? To explain these apparent contradictions, Gene Burns examines the origins of contemporary diversity and conflict in the Catholic Church as well as the processes of ideological change.
With valuable insights into the American Catholic Church, the modern papacy, and the Latin American Church, The Frontiers of Catholicism is as much a political study of ideological dynamics as it is an institutional study of religious change.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Great Historical Study for Progressive Catholics  May 27, 2000
This book gives a thorough yet reader-friendly history of the struggles that Rome has had with the modern liberal world. Burns examines--in depth--the conflicts between Rome and American bishops as well as the role that the American laity has played throughout it all. Burns also addresses the Church in modern Latin America, and concludes with his views on the future of the Church for liberals and progressives. This is a necessary book for anyone wanting to understand the history behind the current schism between conservative and progressive American Catholics.
