Sense of the Faithful

How American Catholics Live Their Faith

Jerome P. Baggett

Jerome Baggett conducted 300 intensive interviews with members of six parishes to explore all aspects of how Catholics balance the Church's ancient devotional practices with day-to-day life in the modern world. Moving beyond the simplistic categories of national surveys and the politically-motivated pronouncements of pundits, Sense of the Faithful ultimately paints a more complex--and more accurate--portrait of what it is like to be Catholic in America today.
