Product Description

Review

Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia
"George Weigel has been the leading diarist of authentic Catholic renewal--its progress, detours, personalities, and hopes--for 30 years. In "Evangelical Catholicism" he turns his extraordinary skills to the needs of the Church in the coming decades, calling us back to the missionary vocation we received at baptism and offering us a road map to faithful, vigorous Church reform. Rich in its vision, engaging in style, on target in its counsel and invaluable for anyone trying to understand the Church and her challenges in the 21st Century, this book should not be missed."

Mary Ann Glendon, author of "The Forum and the Tower: How Scholars and Politicians have Imagined the World, from Plato to Eleanor Roosevelt"
"This remarkable book offers nothing less than a map and compass for men and women determined to take up the challenge of living the Catholic faith in its fullness under 21st-century conditions. With its bold call for 'deep reform' in every single corner of the Church, "Evangelical Catholicism" is sure to provoke lively discussion. The book's proposals for true renewal are presented with the clarity and verve that have made George Weigel a peerless advocate of the courage to be Catholic."


Mary Eberstadt, author of "Adam and Eve after the Pill" and "The Loser Letters"
""Evangelical Catholicism" is a remarkable intellectual and spiritual achievement, even by George Weigel's dauntingly high standards. It is nothing less than a blueprint for the re-evangelization of the West and the re-invigoration of the rest of the world."
John L. Allen Jr., Senior correspondent for the "National Catholic Reporter" and author of "The Future Church: How Ten Trends are Revolutionizing the Catholic Church"
"A laudable hunger to relight the Church's missionary fires is the core of Evangelical Catholicism, but good intentions need practical blueprints if they're going to work. George Weigel has gotten that conversation started in his typically lucid, provocative fashion, and we are all in his debt."
Don J. Briel, Koch Chair in Catholic Studies, University of Saint Thomas
"A timely, accessible and unusually insightful work."
George Cardinal Pell, Archbishop of Sydney
"Weigel at his astringent and prophetic best."
Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York
"This sparkling read puts all the old Church-labels--liberal vs. conservative, progressive vs. traditionalist, pre- vs. post-Vatican II--in the shredder. Now there is only one valid adjective for all of us: "evangelical"! Simply put, this means we take our baptismal promises with the utmost seriousness. Like the Samaritan woman, we've met a man--Jesus--who has changed our lives."

"A rare book that can transform culture and communities from the inside out, beginning with the humble premise of evangelization: to proclaim--in word and deed--the good news of Jesus Christ.

Be Catholic in the true sense of the word.

I think that's what Weigel is asking us to be.
Suspend all partisanship. Embrace the truth of the Faith within what the Church teaches and allows and go out into the World and live the Faith in the everyday.
It's the way to to effectively evangelise.

Written in such a textbook form that it essentially just reels off the right formulas vs the wrong ones. I couldn't get through a chapter without having to break from the bombardment. Generally, I thought this type of discussion is precisely what turns people off but Weigel is obviously a stickler. To be fair, though, I did enjoy the sporadic historical reflections.

Some good ideas but generally it was a long rant about things Weigel doesn't like in the church such as the priest facing the people at Mass, some hymns and people living together being allowed to get married.

His definition of evangelical catholicism had a great deal to do with telling people how to behave and not much on how to show God's love in the world so as to build up God's Kingdom.

This bok claims to be about Evangelical Catholism, but it keeps refeering back to sacramental aspects, whic we have too much of.It has some positive suggestions and is worth reading, but is a bit disapppointing.
