Praise

“BEING CATHOLIC NOW has something to say to almost every Catholic, or even one-time Catholic, who cracks open its pages…What emerges is an often moving glimpse into people’s private lives and their efforts to make sense of both their faith and themselves…Kennedy captures the enormous diversity of Catholic experience and the myriad ways men and women understand their faith and are affected by it. One finishes the book feeling grateful for her subjects’ honesty and moved in a hundred different ways by what they reveal of their aspirations and struggles.”
National Catholic Reporter

“Offers an unusually intimate view of how much being raised Catholic shapes the identity of many prominent Americans, but also how much tension many feel with the institutional church.”
The Boston Globe

“Full of vivid tales…faith and the absence of faith are both journeys, and Kennedy’s provocative and thoughtful book hears from them all.”
Irish Voice
