Catholicism and Me
Ed. John Littleton & Eamon Maher
Catholicism and Me is a collection of 20 personal considerations of why people are Catholic and how being Catholic has affected them. Covering a range of ages and social classes, and both sexes, it is very interesting to see the way in which different people reflect on their faith and are reflected by their faith.
All the contributors are Irish and it is within this sphere that the book attempts to open up discussion to help address the "crisis" of Catholicism within Ireland and outside it. However though specifically Irish in tone this is still a book that many both from within and without the Catholic Church would still find of interest regardless of whether they are Irish or not. At the root of all the contributions is not a national patriotism or faith but rather honest reflections on what being a Catholic means on a personal level. A book for Catholics and for those wanting to know more about Catholics.
