Summary
Why do a third of the people raised Catholic in the United States no longer worship as Catholics? Ralph engages the reader to enter into a necessary yet reasoned conversation about pertinent issues, such as contraception, women's ordination and homosexuality, and present practices surrounding the Catholic Church. She critically examines pertinent topics of not just the secular culture, but the Catholic culture, that affects both families and culture as a whole, and presents a model for how to discuss difficult issues in a respectful and thoughtful manner
