KIRKUS REVIEW

The life and times of a great American archbishop of the diocese of Baltimore, who believed fervently in his faith and in American Democracy -- and lived his belief. Beloved, honored and respected, this great American cleric and liberal is here well portrayed and sympathetically motivated. The problems of his day, -- post-Civil War reconstruction, free vs. parochial education, Catholic participation in Labor Unionism, class schisms within the hierarchy of the Church -- all skillfully woven into his background without the limitations of partisanship. Should have wider market than the subject suggests.
