CHOICE Review

This superbly researched, elegantly written history looks at the development of Catholicism in the US and the diversity of its practitioners. Each of the five sections--"On the Fringes of Empire" [Spanish, French, British], "Growing with the Nation, 1815--1870," "A Turbulent Passage, 1871--1919," "Exuberant Maturity, 1920--1962," "A World Unbound, 1963--2015"--begins with a biography of a representative individual of the period, followed by two or three chapters discussing the major events and challenges of the particular time. In her analyses Tentler (emer., history, Catholic Univ. of America) highlights both strengths and moral complexities of the various periods. She focuses on the varying religious realities of lay Catholics of every era, even as she reports major developments involving clergy and religious sisters. As with any history, readers are likely to find that some issues are not clarified, mentioned only in passing, or overlooked entirely. But the study aptly chronicles a mission church that accepted slavery and then grew into a significant presence in urban parishes, only to experience significant church closures amid a sexual abuse crisis. This outstanding study describes how the Catholic Church once fostered the ethnic identity of Irish, German, Italian, and Polish immigrants and now serves Hispanic Americans and remains a significant feature of American life. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. --Regina A. Boisclair, emerita, Alaska Pacific University
