Title: BREAKING THROUGH: CATHOLIC WOMEN SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
Description:
America is flirting with the idea that being a Catholic female means saying "yes" to the faith as a private source of comfort, but saying "no" to living out its more countercultural moral and social teaching. Catholic women are facing unprecedented questions about sex, money, marriage, work, children, and the church itself - questions with innumerable personal and societal repercussions. Is it even possible that the teachings of a two-thousand-year-old religion are still relevant for today's toughest issues? Nine such Catholic women - varying widely in age, occupation, and experience - share personal stories of how they struggled toward the realization that the demands of their faith actually set them free. Their stories shed new light and new clarity on women's continued attraction to the catholic faith. Helen M. Alvaré, editor 173 pages
