Publisher's Description

The most visible representative of the Catholic Church in the United States shows how the Church is far from being an ossified carry-over tradition from antiquity. Why Catholicism Matters celebrates the significant contribution the Church makes in many aspects of today's world and applies its wisdom to issues on a personal, national, and global scale.
   
In recent years the Catholic Church has gone through turbulent times with the uncovering of horrible abuse that persisted and could have been prevented by certain bishops for so many years. Yet the many positive aspects of what the Catholic Church teaches and practices are not being overlooked. William Donohue, the outspoken and highly visible president of the Catholic League, shows Church teachings remain the best guide to good living ever adopted. He reminds readers of the great wealth of charity and wisdom that exists in the Catholic tradition and explains hows its best attributes can be applies to solve many of the biggest problems society must confront today and in the future.

Editorial Reviews

Bill Donohue’s Why Catholicism Matters offers a fresh and compelling look at how the teachings of the Catholic Church continue to provide the best guide for a healthy, happy society.  Using the four cardinal virtues – prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance – as a springboard, this insightful book delves into the issues facing the Church and the broader community, and shows how the Church is at the cutting edge of providing solutions to those issues.  Why Catholicism Matters should eliminate the tired stereotype of the Church as being little more than a nagging nay-sayer.  On the contrary, it reveals that the Church, and Dr. Donohue himself, give an emphatic YES!  to all that is good, noble and uplifting in the human person.
 
 -Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York


One can rarely finish a commentary by Dr. William Donohue and remain unfazed. In these days of sharp attacks against the Catholic Church and her teachings and values, Bill can be counted on to weigh in, full-blast, and get the attention which our position too often finds ignored in the secular media. In Why Catholicism Matters, readers of every persuasion will find much to inform, deliberate, and, invariably, take issue with. For that, and for his unapologetic commitment to our Faith, I am personally grateful to Dr. Bill Donohue.

-Edwin Cardinal O'Brien


Why Catholicism Matters is an important contribution at a critical time.  As a preeminent voice defending the Church, Dr. Donohue eloquently explains the beauty and importance of Catholic faith.  On the canvas of the cardinal virtues, he presents a true and beautiful portrait of the Church that will benefit all people of faith."
 
-His Eminence Donald Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington


TV audiences know Bill Donohue as a scrapper; a vigorous defender of the Catholic faith in his public role as leader of the Catholic League.  But he's also a gifted scholar and, as 'Why Catholicism Matters' demonstrates, a thoughtful, vivid and compelling writer.  This is a must-read book for anyone who wants to understand the role Catholics need to play in recovering key Christian virtues and renewing American society."
 
-Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia


With religious freedom under assault from many directions, what better moment to be reminded of Catholicism’s wisdom, glories, and multi-faceted contributions to the common good?  And who better to remind us than that tireless defender of the Catholic faith, Bill Donohue?  Donohue is a treasure and his book is a gem.
 
-Mary Ann Glendon, Author of The Forum and the Tower: How Scholars and Politicians Have Imagined the World  



Bill Donohue has spent much of his life defending the Catholic Church- in his latest work he joyously celebrates it. This tour of the Church's forgotten virtues and the many gifts She has given society reminds us all why the Faith remains the prime mover in our time.  It also demonstrates why Donohue matters! 
-Raymond  Arroyo, New York Times Bestselling Author, host of EWTN's' The World Over.'
