<p><i>Journeys to the Heart of Catholicism</i> is a collection of thought-provoking essays that compel the reader to examine some of the most important social and religious issues of our time. Schmidt addresses the carnage in Iraq, the careful nurturing of a spirit of detachment towards war, and theChristian church, which has become derelict in its understanding of thenonviolent Gospel. How did the faith of Jesus become known to be pro-rich and pro-war? Other topics include the Catholic Church and celibacy (The Elephant in the Sacristy: The Silence Around Celibacy), slavery, the contradictions of capitalism, globalization, and an overview of the life and achievements of John Kenneth Galbraith.</p>
