About-

This expanded edition of a Loyola Press best seller traces profound changes in Catholicism's institutional, intellectual, and devotional life in this century. Organized by theme--authority, mission, social justice, sexual morality, and others--the book explains Church thinking prior to Vatican II, Church thinking now, and the how and why of Council changes. It shows the Church struggling to find the best way to maintain and hand on the Catholic tradition even as it engages in intrafaith and interreligious dialogue. A new chapter on women in the Church, their contributions and issues, completes the update.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"As intellectually impressive and enlightening as it is, The Catholic Tradition offers nourishment not only to the mind, but also to the heart. This sensitive, tolerant re-telling of the latest chapters of the story of Catholicism is as hopeful and inspiring as it is sobering in its survey of the challenges that face us."
--America

"McCarthy provides essential reading for those seeking to place contemporary Catholic conflicts within a historical context."
--Church History

"McCarthy's book remains a clearly written, thoughtful, fair-minded, comprehensive, learned, and judicious exploration of the Catholic theological tradition in the past century."
--The Catholic Historical Review
