Review:

This is a superb account of the American Catholic experience. Father Crews is a master storyteller and a careful historian. This book is easy to read. History comes alive. Catholic people are presented with all their holiness and warts. Crews tells the story of the people of God, demonstrating his sensitivity to the diversity of the ethnic, religious, and theological tradition. It will be especially useful in college and seminary courses as well as in adult education. --Patrick W. Carey, Chair, Theology Department,Marquette University

. . . a complete and balanced presentation of the story of the American Catholic people. Father Crews writes with a pronounced pastoral sense and scholarly accuracy. The book will make a significant contribution to our knowledge and understanding of the Church. --James Hennessey, S.J., historian

...a deceptively fine book. This is real history, not a mere chronicle of events, as is evident from the author s deft and balanced handling of such controversial topics as the evangelization of the North Americans, slavery, Americanism and the role of women in American Catholic history. --Church
