The New Catholics: Contemporary Converts Tell Their Stories

The New Catholics: Contemporary Converts Tell Their Stories

by Dan O'Neil

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
These 17 first-person accounts of contemporary conversions to Roman Catholicism have a certain sameness. Many of the authors moved toward their new church from Anglicanism, having been influenced by reading Oxford Movement notables such as C. S. Lewis and Chesterton. Having made the decision to convert, these new Catholics seem happy with the authoritarian structure, including the sexual ethic, that has caused ``birth Catholics'' so much pain of late. Editor O'Neill and his wife Cherry, daughter of singer Pat Boone, are among the converts. For special and comprehensive collections. Myriel Crowley Eykamp, East Boston Harborside Community Schl.
