Drawn from the 2019 conference of the College Theology Society at Holy Cross College in South Bend, Indiana, this volume explores the diverse and rich meanings of what “being Catholic” is in the global church of the 21st century. Scholars from several continents and cultural contexts, including plenary speakers Maria Clara Bingemer, Shalini Mulackal, PBVM, and Stan Chu Ilo, bring their distinctive perspectives on living the Catholic faith in dialogue with North American theologians.
While the book is written for scholars of theology and Catholicism, it will be of interest to anyone who wishes to deepen their understandings of the import of Catholicism in its third millennium.
