Many Catholics face a dilemma: how can one be faithful to traditions, yet remain open to new discoveries, both about oneself and Catholicism? In The Good Enough Catholic, Paul Wilkes plumbs the hunger in Catholic souls for a relationship with God and a spiritual life, and boldly confronts the controversial issue of Church authority. After each chapter, there is an invitation to put into practice what has been explored through a rich mixture of doctrine, history, current thinking, and the personal experiences of "good enough" Catholics across America. With this book, Wilkes beckons us to look to the essence of our religion for the guidance and strength to live lives filled with spiritual transcendence.
The acclaimed author of "And They Shall Be My People" presents an inspiring look at the endurance of Catholicism in the face of a changing Church and challenged believers.
Paul Wilkes's writing on religious belief and spirituality has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, and other magazines both in the United States and abroad. He wrote and directed the acclaimed PBS documentary on Thomas Merton, Merton: A Film Biography, and is the author of many books, most recently The Good Enough Catholic.
