Freedom and its Discontents: Catholicism Confronts Modernity

How can an authoritative church avoid authoritarianism? How can a church committed to a dialogue with modern science and the humanities still hold itself accountable to an ancient religious tradition? How can a hierarchied church defend religious freedom and support the democratic revolution in world politics? George Weigel’s exploration of these issues of the modern Catholic debate over freedom touches concerns far beyond Catholic circles.
