This volume brings together some forty-five articles, editorials, and contributions from the pages of the National Catholic Review, America, of which the editor of this volume is himself the managing editor. The range of matter included is wide, from ""The World is Already Christic"" to ""Making Mature Movie Viewers,"" to matters of racial justice, the sexual revolution, and the Ecumenical Councils. Contributors are mustered from the ranks of the religious, the scholarly, and the laity. Inevitably in such an anthology, the quality of writing varies; but the essential spriteliness and vigor of thought that has informed this magazine is widely reflected, and the scope of interests, points of view, and argument offered give further indication of the new life breaking forth in the Roman Catholic communion. The book should be attractive reading to many of that communion's members--and perhaps, should be required reading for a large number of Protestants.
