About this item

An impassioned defense of American exceptionalism—and what threatens its continuity— from the Archbishop of Philadelphia.

From the author of Living the Catholic Faith and Render unto Caesar comes a fresh, urgent, and ultimately hopeful treatise on the state of Catholicism and Christianity in the United States. America in 2016 is different in kind, not just in degree, from the past. And this no longer can be reversed. The reasons include – but aren't limited to – economic changes that widen the gulf between rich and poor; problems in the content and execution of the education system; the decline of traditional religious belief among young people; the shift from organized religion among adults to unbelief or individualized spiritualities; changes in legal theory and erosion in respect for civil and natural law; immigration (a very good thing, but with broad cultural consequences); federal power encroaching on religious rights; alienation of the leadership classes; and the decline of the sustaining sense of family and community.
