Mr. Steinfels, formerly editor of Commonweal , draws on his years of reporting for the New York Times in offering his overview of the Catholic situation in America. A self-described liberal, he speaks chiefly to other liberals about what he views as the failures and successes of changes since the Second Vatican Council. Alternative accounts are, regrettably, ignored or derided but nowhere engaged. Steinfels’ emphasis is on the institutional and sociological, “rather than,” as he puts it, “the profoundly spiritual or theological.” A chapter is given to the recent scandals, but he believes the deeper “crisis” of his subtitle is occasioned by the Church’s failure to respond adequately to the demands of women, the reality of contraception, the acceptance of homosexuals, and related changes in the culture. He urges what he calls the “American Catholic Church” to be more independent from Rome, and asserts that the Magisterium is teaching falsely about, inter alia, the ordination of women to the priesthood, which he believes will happen “ultimately” but should be implemented cautiously. On the renewal of episcopal leadership, Mr. Steinfels’ favored models are the outspokenly liberal Kenneth Untener of Michigan, the now disgraced Rembert Weakland of Milwaukee, and, above all, the late Joseph Cardinal Bernardin of Chicago. Like embattled socialists who contend that true socialism has yet to be tried, Mr. Steinfels surveys the damages wrought by liberal interpretations of the Council over nearly four decades and recommends as a solution his somewhat tempered version of the same. The book begins and ends with a touchingly nostalgic backward look at what the author views as the unfulfilled promise of the late Cardinal Bernardin and the now languishing Common Ground Initiative, which sought a dialogue between those who affirm and those who ignore or deny Catholic teachings that stand in the way of the further Americanization of Catholicism. A People Adrift is a competent and eminently readable, albeit by now very familiar, account of religious, cultural, and institutional changes, written in tones of wan hope for a new and improved liberalism that is capable of resisting what the author sees as the threat posed by the “conservative” alternative. The book may be profitably read as an informed, if highly selective and tendentious, review of the recent history of Catholicism in America. Having set spiritual and theological profundity aside, Mr. Steinfels makes as good a case as probably can be made for defending the weakened hegemony of the liberal status quo supporting an American Catholic Church.
Do not be put off by the subtitle and the publisher’s hype that Gibson is, inter alia, championing “a revolution from below.” This book is, for the most part, a temperate and thoughtful description of the current state of Catholicism in America, providing also responsible speculation about what the future might hold. Gibson is a veteran journalist who has reported on Catholicism from the Vatican and for various American publications. His is a “liberal” take on most questions, but he is determined to be doctrinally orthodox and generally treats with respect views counter to his own. He came into the Church as an adult and, unlike many liberal Catholics, recognizes the dangers of “Protestantizing” changes that could lead to a loss of what is essential and distinctive in Catholicism. For the general reader, he provides useful historical background pertinent to contemporary developments. His treatment of the recent scandals is candid and informative in attending to the very large part played by what Bishop Wilton Gregory has called the “homosexualizing” of the priesthood. He believes a married priesthood is “inevitable,” but acknowledges that such a transition must be slow and will not be without the loss of spiritual goods associated with celibacy. Regrettably, he sometimes slips into purveying the scuttlebutt of other reporters, notably against Edward Cardinal Egan of New York and Bishop William Murphy of Long Island. And he greatly overestimates the importance of distinctly American developments for the universal Church. All in all, however, The Coming Catholic Church is a knowledgeable and finely written account of the Catholic circumstance in America. David Gibson represents a Catholic liberalism that wants to be faithful to the Church’s teaching, recognizes the failures of liberalisms past, and is appropriately modest in its anticipations of the future. His book can be profitably read in tandem with, and in critical contrast with, George Weigel’s remarkable The Courage To Be Catholic .
The subtitle is “The Contentious History of a Founding Ideal,” and the first problem with this book by a professor of history at Harvard Divinity School is that it is by no means evident, indeed it is highly improbable, that the Founders subscribed to the contentious ideal of what today is meant by pluralism. Like his colleague Diana Eck (see “One Nation Under Many Gods,” FT, Public Square, October 2001), Professor Hutchinson, albeit in more tempered manner, holds out the hope for an America as seen through the prism of Harvard Yard. It is not an entirely unattractive vision, but it is an America very different from the confusedly Christian and tribal nation that we are and are likely to be for the foreseeable future.

As its title suggests, War in a Time of Peace judges the general failure of a coherent foreign policy, absent the central organizing principle of containment of communism, by only one of its main components: the use or the threat of use of military force. A further subtitle to the book might have been: the failure to understand how to use military power as an instrument of foreign policy in an age when the nature of warfare is changing.
The marionettes were at their least effective when aping the stand-and-belt poses of real life singers, and subtitles for the German text (heard on Ferenc Fricsay's classic 1950s recording) would have been welcome. The translated patches of spoken dialogue helped, though the upper-crusty tone of the British actors did not. The evocative designs were streamlined old-school--perhaps too old-school in the case of the well-researched but politically quite incorrect Moors. 041b061a72
