Healing the Racial Divide retrieves the insights of Dr. Arthur Falls (1901-2000) for composing a renewed theology of Catholic racial justice. Falls was a black Catholic medical doctor who dedicated his life to healing rifts created by white supremacy and racism. He integrated theology, the social sciences, and personal experience to compose a salve that was capable of not only integrating neighborhoods but also eradicating the segregation that existed in Chicago hospitals. Falls was able to reframe the basic truths of the Christian faith in a way that unleashed their prophetic power. He referred to those Catholics who promoted segregation in Chicago as believers in the "mythical body of Christ," as opposed to the mystical body of Christ. The "mythical body of Christ" is a heretical doctrine that excludes African Americans and promotes the delusion that white people are the normative measure of the Catholic faith.

How does the Church function in the world? What is it called to do, and what does it actually do? Charles E. Curran explores the social mission of the U.S. Catholic Church from a theological perspective, analyzing and assessing four aspects: the importance of social mission, who carries it out, how it is carried out, and the roles that the Church and individual Catholics play in supporting these efforts. In the early and mid-twentieth century the Catholic Church in the United States tended to focus its social mission on its own charities, hospitals, and schools. But the Second Vatican Council called the Church to a new understanding of social mission, deepening its involvement in and commitment to civic, social, and political life in the United States and abroad. Curran devotes particular attention to three issues that have reflected the Church's strong sense of social mission since that time: abortion, war and peace, and labor. The Social Mission of the U.S. Catholic Church describes the proper role of bishops, institutions, and movements in the Church, but insists that the primary role belongs to all the baptized members of the Church as they live out the social mission in their daily lives.

Steeples topped by crosses still dominate neighborhood skylines in many American cities, silent markers of local worlds rarely examined by historians. In Parish Boundaries, John McGreevy chronicles the history of these Catholic parishes and connects their unique place in the urban landscape to the course of American race relations in the twentieth century.

Der Journalist Marco Politi wirft einen spektakulären Blick hinter die Kulissen des Vatikan. Papst Franziskus hat nicht viel Zeit für seine Revolution. In Argentinien geben etliche Kirchenvertreter zu bedenken, dass seine Jahre gezählt sind. "Ich habe das Gefühl, dass Gott mich für eine kurze Zeit hierher gestellt hat"; so seine eigene Überzeugung. Der argentinische Papst ist sich darüber im Klaren, dass er eine Wende herbeiführt. Für die Kirche ist das Endresultat des Umbruchs noch ungewiss. Es könnte ein New Deal wie der des amerikanischen Präsidenten Roosevelt dabei herauskommen – oder ein Erdbeben wie Gorbatschows Perestroika. Papst Franziskus revolutioniert die Kirche. Doch seine Feinde werden immer mehr. Darunter sind Kardinäle genauso wie die Mafia und der Islamische Staat. Noch ist unklar, ob die Revolution gelingt. "Die Feinde von Papst Franziskus agieren und reden im Verborgenen. Sie applaudieren mit den anderen, heucheln Papsttreue und mögen es gar nicht, wenn man sie als Gegner des argentinischen Pontifex bezeichnet. Schließlich, so sagen sie, wollen sie doch nur verhindern, dass er Fehler macht. Doch wenn sie unter sich sind, wetzen sie ihre Messer." (Marco Politi)

"Man hatte mir beigebracht, was man als Christ glaubt. Aber niemand hatte mir gezeigt, wie man als Christ lebt." Wie lebt man als Christ? Diese Frage führt Shane Claiborne auf ungewöhnliche Wege. Er reist nach Kalkutta und begleitet Mutter Teresa zu den Ärmsten der Armen - und dort begegnet er Gott auf ganz neue Weise. Seine "Bekehrung zur radikalen Nachfolge" ruiniert seine beruflichen Pläne, führt ihn in die Innenstadtghettos an die Seite der Vergessenen der Wohlstandsgesellschaft und zu Beginn des Irakkriegs 2003 als Friedensaktivist nach Bagdad. Der "Extremist der Nächstenliebe" erzählt eine Geschichte voller Leidenschaft, Kreativität und eines Glaubens, der durch kleine Taten der Liebe die Welt verändert.

In the 1960s, a number of Catholic women in the United States abandoned traditional apostolic works to experiment with new and often unprecedented forms of service among non-Catholics. Koehlinger explores the phenomenon of the "new nun" through close examination of one of its most visible forms--the experience of white sisters working in African-American communities. In this book, Koehlinger captures the confusion and frustration, as well as the exuberance and delight, that they experienced in their new Christian mission.
