“_American Parishes_ is a specialized publication of the best kind…”

These are the words that Kevin J. Christiano uses to describe American Parishes: Remaking Local Catholicism, a book I edited with Gary Alder and Brian Starks (2019, Fordham University Press). Christiano brings the reader in with the following personalized account in his review:

We are grateful for Christiano’s careful read and positive review that concludes with “This is a book that ought to inspire and orient new and better research about the life of the Catholic Church in the United States and the parishes in which it is lived every day of the year.”

Read the review in its entirety in the Review of Religious Research journal and purchase the book in hardcover or paperback to read it for yourself!
