Young Adult Catholics: Religion in the Culture of Choice
"By far the most comprehensive and insightful study ever done of young adult Catholics ages 20 to 39, this book compares Latino and non-Latino Catholics (differences are generally small) on a wide array of beliefs, attitudes, and practices. Most like being Catholic and cannot imagine being otherwise but beyond Mass attendance, connections to parish life and with the Church's sacramentalism are tenuous. The authors' ten concluding recommendations, embedded in a penetrating analysis of 'the culture of choice,' are invaluable." - Patrick H.
