March Book Club Selection: An American Experience of God

This month, St. Paul's Classic Catholic Fiction Book Club will be reading An American Experience of God by historian John Farina. Dr. Farina will join us for a discussion of the book during our meeting!

In the year since the onset of the pandemic, our nation has reckoned with political uncertainty, environmental devastation, and had to face the deep-seated inequality that exists in our society. We have all had to look inward, and examine our own actions and beliefs. When masks are lifted, will we come together again in our shared faith? How will we have changed?


Father Isaac Hecker, in the late 1800’s, realized that being American and Catholic were a good match. The mission of the Paulist Fathers, then and now, revolves around, Evangelization, Ecumenism, and Reconciliation- walking with people on their journey of faith. How can we apply his ideals to our new national reality?


Dr. John Farina, author of this book, associate professor of Religious Studies at George Mason University, specializes in the areas of religion and society, law and religion, American religious history, and the hostory of Western Spirituality. Dr. Faina will join us for this discussion. Father James DiLuzio, CSP will serve as moderator.
