Website Review: America, the National Catholic Weekly

A review based on:


This is the official home page of America, a weekly "Catholic" magazine published by the Jesuits. It contains news, analysis, opinion, commentary on the Sunday Scripture readings, and reviews of books, films, and TV. America Press, Inc., the publisher of America magazine, also sponsors a Catholic book of the month club specializing in theology and spirituality.

The site itself contains selected articles from the current issue and a complete archive of past issues. There are numerous articles on this site, and many of them should be read only with extreme caution. Some of the authors and material directly oppose or undermine the Church's teachings and authority.
