- About This Issue
We are pleased to publish our first issue on Priests in the American Catholic Community. We are also publishing the first symposium review by one of our Consulting Editors, Justus George Lawler. We will now be publishing reviews of books by Consulting and Associate Editors in future issues. Because Lawler's book is of such significance it will generate many reviews. To publish its first review is a mark of distinction for our journal.
