Abstract:

A series of well-reasoned sociological speculations about some of the major problems which American Catholicism faces as a part of modern society--sex, community, leadership, work, play, celebration, God, education, the priesthood, society and a sense of self. The author contends that the options available to the human race are rapidly decreasing, and that men must now learn to live together in faith and trust, or face certain self-destruction. Presents a unique view of the life that man may achieve in the coming century--a life based on the values of history and tradition, and dedicated to openness to change.
