The critically acclaimed Best Catholic Writing series continues with contributions from Joseph Bottum, Robert Ellsberg, John Garvey, Dawn Eden, and twenty-two other essayists, poets, scholars, and journalists. The selections this year bring to life vivid Catholic personalities (Henri Nouwen, Charles de Foucauld, Bruce Springsteen) and explore urgent topics at the intersection of faith and culture (evolution, Opus Dei and The Da Vinci Code, public prayer). Notable contributions in this year's edition include challenging essays on Catholic culture in America by Joseph Bottum and Farrell O'Gorman, Ron Hansen's classic essay on faith and fiction, Philip Jenkins's argument that religion is the key to history, an Easter sermon by Archbishop Rowan Williams, and Pope Benedict XVI's memorable address at Auschwitz. The edition includes material from the United Kingdom and Australia and material first published on the Internet.
