Here is a bold critique of today's America, a provocative look at the post-Christian public square and the gradual erosion of the religious faith and freedom that have marked it for so long. At the same time, Archbishop Charles J. Chaput offers prophetic, empowering guidance on how Christians - and especially Catholics- can successfully overcome the challenges and not merely survive but reclaim the joy, the beauty, and the grandeur of life in the world.
"This is an important book about the most important questions: Who are we as Christians, and how do we live and love, work and create? How do we raise our families, educate our children, and carry out our Christian mission? How do we serve God in this 'strange land' that now, too often, sees the Church, her teachings, and her institutions as an enemy? A must read for Catholics and anyone concerned for America's future." Most Reverend Jose H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles
