My latest book is out!!
I’m thrilled to share that the volume I coedited with Gary Adler and Brian Starks – born of The American Parish Project (TAPP) – is now available! American Parishes: Remaking Local Catholicism was just published by Fordham University Press as a part of their Catholic Press in North America Series.
The book features introductory and concluding chapters to frame and orient a sociological approach to parishes. Another chapter I authored provides a historical overview of sociology and parish studies. Additional chapter contributions come from Nancy Ammerman; Gary Adler; Mark Gray; Brett Hoover; Tia Noelle Pratt; Mary Jo Bane; Kathleen Garces-Foley; Courtney Ann Irby; and John Coleman.
