A morphing of Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary with The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church, this book takes a satirical look at the contemporary church scene. It intends to help the church look at itself from a new, satirical perspective and see how the world views the traditions of the church, both old and new. The Christian reader should see a need for change of perspective, programs, and identity and find reason to act on the need for change. Each dictionary entry will make the reader laugh as well as think. This tongue-in-cheek look at Christian church programs, theology, ministry, personnel, and activities will prompt church leaders and members to laugh at themselves and their hidebound ways, while humoring scholars to laugh at the irrelevance of so much scholarly activity.

This is a brief highly readable history of the Catholic experience in British America, which shaped the development of the colonies and the nascent republic in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Historian Robert Emmett Curran begins his account with the English reformation, which helps us to understand the Catholic exodus from England, Ireland, and Scotland that took place over the nearly two centuries that constitute the colonial period. The deeply rooted English understanding of Catholics as enemies of the political and religious values at the heart of British tradition, ironically acted as a catalyst for the emergence of a Catholic republican movement that was a critical factor in the decision of a strong majority of American Catholics in 1775 to support the cause for independence
