About the Author

Paul Lakeland holds the Aloysius P. Kelly, S.J. Chair in Catholic Studies at Fairfield University, USA. He is the author of five books, on women's ordination, Hegel, liberation theology, and the intersections of theology with critical theory and postmodern cultural theory.


""Catholicism at the Crossroads "gives us an operating manual for a caring and intelligent church membership. Paul Lakeland invites Catholics to go deeper and to understand how an overcentralized understanding of church has stymied the spiritual maturity of many of today's lay members. His inspiring book provides an unsettling view of how passivity in the pew is hurting the church, while offering a formula for a more responsive and transformed faith community." Francis J. Butler, Foundations and Donors Interested in Catholic Activities, Inc.--Sanford Lakoff

.".. an intelligently written, substantive, and highly engaging book about how to be church in the spirit of Vatican II. It is written 'for adult Catholics who want an adult church that can sustain their adult faith'" -Rodger Van Allen, Horizons, Vol. 34, No. 2, Fall 2007
--Sanford Lakoff
