Publisher's Summary

From Charles J. Chaput, author of Living the Catholic Faith and Render unto Caesar, comes Strangers in a Strange Land, a fresh, urgent, and ultimately hopeful treatise on the state of Catholicism and Christianity in the United States. America today is different in kind, not just in degree, from the past. And this new reality is unlikely to be reversed. The reasons include, but aren't limited to, economic changes that widen the gulf between rich and poor, problems in the content and execution of the education system, the decline of traditional religious belief among young people, the shift from organized religion among adults to unbelief or individualized spiritualities, changes in legal theory and erosion in respect for civil and natural law, significant demographic shifts, profound new patterns in sexual behavior and identity, the growth of federal power and its disregard for religious rights, the growing isolation and elitism of the leadership classes, and the decline of a sustaining sense of family and community.

    "Compelling and challenging"

    So richly written I've decided to actually order the book. These are important words for Christians to ponder today who see the culture and the world crumbling under the weight of moral relativism. He reminds us of a long heritage of struggle and witness... And that in Christ we can do what is needed. After all, this is the time in history that we have been given. Thank you Archbishop for your words to strengthen us for our work. Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle...

    "A Must Read"

    Archbishop Chaput has offered a very important contribution to the conversation on the cultural crisis of our time. In particular, the chapter on Hope may be one of the most profound reflections ever written on the topic. Strangers in a Strange Land is published at about the same time as Rod Dreher's The Benedict Option and Anthony Esolen's Out of the Ashes. Chaput's offering is different from but complements these two books, and together they each remind us of the most important things, things lost and things worth recovering, in a post-Christian world.

    "Strongly recommended"

    One of the best and honest descriptions I have encountered about what is the Catholic faith to do in a strongly secularized society.

    Recommend for any Christian -especially Catholics- who want to do something about re-energizing the faith in the USA or in any other country for that matter.

    Johnathan Davis is the best audiobook narrator I have heard (so far, I’ve listened to >30 audiobook narrators).

    "Brilliant and spiritually edifying"

    Archbishop Chaput has a wonderful gift for analyzing and summarizing the crisis of faith in our culture and world today. But what's more is that he offers the reader practical and intelligent advice on how we can respond effectively to that crisis, careful to avoid the opposing pitfalls of cultural syncretism and culture escapism.

    "Beautiful"

    I have to say I've never read anything or listen to anything by Archbishop Chaput but I'm inspired by him. The book is well articulated and he has a firm grasp on the pulse of our culture. Thank you so much for your voice!

    "Hope in a Troubled Land"

    Archbishop Chaput provides a solid, Catholic filter for those trying find their way in our troubled country. lack of moral leadership in our secular society leaves a gaping wound that is infecting our country. Religious leadership must shine in the darkness . Archbishop Chaput is that candle.
