"Keep the Faith, Change the Church tells the highly readable story of a group of dynamic Catholics determined to improve their church. This fast-paced book is required reading for all who care about the future of the Catholic Church in the United States and throughout the world." Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., president emeritus of the University of Notre Dame
"I couldn't put Keep the Faith, Change the Church down. This moving and compelling narrative is balanced, moderate in tone, and, above all, faithful. It surely will bring us closer to a graced tipping point, closer to the time when a renewed church will embrace the voice and gifts of all its members." Donald Cozzens, author of Sacred Silence: Denial and the Crisis in the Church and The Changing Face of the Priesthood
"It has been nearly forty years since the Second Vatican Council challenged the laity to more effectively involve themselves in carrying forth the message of Jesus Christ. Recent action by Voice of the Faithful is a reflection of the fact that at long last this challenge is taking root.... Today we see the church being influenced by the march of democracy. This transition will not be smooth or without pain, but it will come about." Most Rev. John McCarthy, bishop emeritus of the Austin (Texas) diocese
"This powerful and lucidly written book chronicles the coming of a great Catholic renewal, a light out of darkness, when courageous men and women took responsibility for their faith and kept it alive. A book for all who love the Catholic Church."
James Carroll, author of Constantine's Sword and Toward a New Catholic Church
POWER TO THE LAITY.... That's the positive message behind Voice of the Faithful, the Boston-based Catholic group that has come together in response to the shocking revelations of widespread sexual abuse and the concerted effort by the church hierarchy to cover up the problem. Starting out in the basement social hall of a suburban parish, Voice formed to help heal the hurt felt by so many of the faithful and soon grew into a formidable movement with a worldwide presence. Today, Voice is leading the call for sensible reform and providing a powerful voice for the laity in restoring the grace and goodness of the Catholic Church.
