Summary (From the publisher):

What do today's American Catholics really believe and how do they behave? Why, despite the turbulence of the last quarter century and their disaffection from institutional leaders and several official teachings, do Catholics, while often rebellious in their practices, remain stubbornly loyal to their church?

For the past three decades, Andrew Greeley -- priest, sociologist, bestselling author and controversial critic -- has been researching the behavior and beliefs of America's Catholics through data collected and studied at the University of Chicago's National Opinion Research Center (NORC). He deftly translates the hard data into a comprehensive narrative that (in his own words) describes "the fascinating, wonderful, and slightly daffy story of American Catholicism since the end of the Second Vatican Council."
