Catholicism at the Millennium is a book that grew out of a series of weekly lectures to students and the public at large on the state of the Catholic Church at the millennium. The book looks at the Catholic Church from the perspective of such diverse areas as theology, philosophy, biology, economics, sociology, music, history, and literature. Each chapter, by looking back and looking forward, explores what it means for the Catholic Church to be both a Church of tradition but also a Church in transition. Because the book began as a series of lectures, the book is especially useful as a text on Catholicism for students and interested laity. The book provides readers with a solid grounding in the traditions of the Church. It also challenges them to think about Catholicism in new ways. As a snapshot of the Catholic Church at this point in its history, Catholicism at the Millennium engages the reader in the ongoing debates today involving academy, Church, and culture.
