9780739102923: Bright Promise, Failed Community: Catholics and the American Public Order

In Bright Promise, Failed Community, respected Catholic sociologist Joseph Varacalli describes how and why Catholic America has essentially failed to shape the American Republic in any significant way. American society has never experienced a 'Catholic moment' ―the closest it came was during the immediate post-World War II era―nor is it now close to approximating one. Varacalli identifies as the cause of the current situation the 'failed community' of Catholic America: an ineffective and dissent-ridden set of organizational arrangements that has not succeeded in adequately communicating the social doctrine of the Church to Catholic Americans or to the key idea-generating sectors of American life. The 'bright promise' of Catholic America lies in the long and still developing tradition of social Catholicism. With a revitalized, orthodox, sophisticated community to serve as the carrier of Catholic social doctrine, Varacalli sees trends of thought that would propose viable alternatives to philosophies and ideologies that currently dominate the American public sphere-ones that would thus have a formidable impact on American society.

About the Author:

Joseph A. Varacalli is Professor of Sociology and director for the Center of Catholic Studies at Nassau Community College-SUNY. He is the Cofounder of the Society of Catholic Social Scientists and was formerly Editor-in-Chief of the Catholic Social Science Review.

Review:

[A] sobering book. . . balanced by a look at the ways in which restorationism is already leading us toward a genuine 'catholic moment' in America. (National Catholic Register)

One will look in vain for a more trenchant analysis of why Catholic America, often ridden with dissent, has until now failed, in Professor Varacalli's words, to 'shape the American Republic in any significant way.' . . . Bright Promise, Failed Community: Catholics and the American Public Order is sociology at its best! (Donald J. D'Elia, SUNY, New Paltz)

I am genuinely impressed with the important matters [Varacalli] consider[s], critically important, I would say, for the Church and the American polity. (Walter Nicgorski, University of Notre Dame)

No one has defined as clearly as Varacalli, precisely why the American Church has been relatively ineffective in shaping American public life. The "bright promise" of Catholic America lies in the long and still developing tradition of social Catholicism. This book is a remarkable contribution. (The Catholic Educator's Resource Center)

In this lucidly written, physically attractive, intellectually lively, and politically provocative volume, author Joseph A. Varacalli offers his explanation as to why the 'bright promise' of Catholic social teaching hasn't been widely accepted and received favorably in the American Republic....Whether or not one agrees with Varacalli's analysis, he has put forth a serious intellectual, moral, and religious challenge to those who defend the present situation in the Catholic Church of the United States.' (Anthony Haynor, Seton Hall University)

I am very, very impressed with [this] work. I don't believe anybody has yet defined quite as clearly as Varacalli has, with supporting evidence, precisely why the apparently prosperous American Church and the huge number of Catholics here should prove to be so relatively irrelevant to American public life. Varacalli has succeeded in explaining and documenting why this is so. (Kenneth D. Whitehead, Former Assistant Secretary of Education during the Reagan Administration)

Dr. Varacalli has provided his readers seeking to better understand the present 'Civil War' in American Culture and in American Catholicism, with an intellectual treat....This is a book which deserves to be seriously studied by every informed Catholic and, above all, by every Bishop concerned at the surrender to the 'spirit of the world' by so many professed Catholics. (James Likoudis St. Catherine's Review)

The book is valuable both for its description of [the institutional weaknesses of Catholicism in America] and the abundant documentation supplied by the author. . . . [It] should be welcomed by all students of the Catholic situation in America (First Things)

To date the most accomplished study on the subject has undoubtedly been The Catholic Moment by Fr. Richard John Neuhaus. . . . Yet since that outstanding book appeared in 1987, no other work has matched its intellectual depth and power. Until now. The publication of Bright Promise, Failed Community by Dr. Joseph Varacalli―considered by many to be the nation's leading Catholic social scientist―updates, complements, expands upon, and ultimately surpasses Fr. Neuhaus' seminal book. (William Doino Jr. The Wanderer)

Much has been said and written in the post-conciliar years about the contemporary 'crisis of faith,' of course; but Prof. Varacalli brings to his analysis of the situation the sharp tools and insights of the competent modern social scientist. The result is one of the best current treatments of the state of public Catholicism in America that has appeared. (L'osservatore Romano)
