Publisher's Description

"Bob Betterton has been a faithful Catholic for 80 years and is unafraid to show that the emperor often has no clothes. While courageously defending the church in a time when it's easier to back away from it than stay within and build it up, his suggestions for change have the authority of one who has studied the issues his whole life and knows what he is talking about. At once autobiographical, theological, and spiritual, Saving the Catholic Church While Sitting in a Pew is a timely book for others who love the church and are interested in preserving what matters most."--Michael Leach, author of Why Stay Catholic? "If all the clerics in America would honestly consider what this book makes so clear, the "future American Church" might stand a chance."--William J. O'Malley SJ, author of The WOW Factor"Objective research, illuminated by imagination, humor and common sense, makes Saving the Catholic Church While Sitting in a Pew a hope-filled treatise for frustrated Catholics. Read it, underline what resonates, then buy a second copy for a friend.--Barbara G. Reynolds, former Chair Religious Studies Department, Fordham Prep"Critical analysis of the American Catholic Church by Lay Persons currently has some very articulate voices, both from Journalism and from Academe. Think: Curran, Gibson, Lakeland, Leach, Steinfels and Wilkes. Here, now, is an articulate voice which quite literally rises up from the pews to define the genre of the "Critical Catholic." No one I know of has attempted to assay the size of this group. I do know that this book will attract a lot of new members to it. One "C" to which Bob's first book did not refer is most important in this one: Constructive "--Ronald A. Naumann, MD, Non-complacent Pastoral Council Member
