I am a cradle Roman Catholic and attended Catholic Schools from Prima (Kindergarden) through the 12th grade. I remember pre-Vatican II. I am working on the history of an African-American Roman Catholic parish in Atlanta, GA. (i.e., Our Lady of Lourdes celebrated its centennial in 2012). The church and its relationships with African-Americans in the south has really evolved since Vatican II. Both Lourdes and my West End Atlanta parish really "rock" -- you can feel the presence of the Holy Spirit. I am a quasi-historian. I was led to Father Fogarty's book by taking a Bible study course. The Old Testament really caught my interest. The Fogarty book helps place the RC church in America into a historical context. It helps me really understand and appreciate the RC church and its American substructure.
Incredible! A clear overview of some key issues the American Catholic Church faced in it's growth. Fogarty is an incredible wealth of knowledge when it come to this topic.
