New Catholics chronicles the evolution of the Catholic Church and its impact in our world from over a quarter-century ago to present day. How has the role of women changed through the history of the Church? What can we look forward to as the number of priests continues to decline? The author answers these and other questions that prevail in the minds of today's sixty-two million American Catholics. But how do we describe the Catholics of tomorrow? What are the questions the Catholics of the years 2010 to 2040 will be asking? And what do we need to do to get there? Mr. Jones has some definite ideas.
