Miracle on High Street

The Rise, Fall and Resurrection of St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, N.J.

Thomas A. McCabe

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • The story of this school is equal parts splendid and messy, and in many respects it is thoroughly bound to the fortunes of Newark, the third oldest city in America. It is about a school's rise and fall, resurrection and renaissance. But it is also the story of religion in the American city DS a narrative whose central elements include race, ethnicity, class and urban crisis as well as tradition and modernity.
