Taking a look at today's Church and religious situation, Neuhaus argues that there is a necessary awkwardness about Christian ministry because we are ambassadors of a "disputed sovereignty".

American Babylon : notes of a Christian exile by Richard John Neuhaus( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christians are by their nature a people out of place. Their true home is with God; in civic life, they are alien citizens "in but not of the world." Here, eminent theologian Richard John Neuhaus examines the particular truth of that ambiguity for Catholics in America today. Neuhaus addresses the essential quandaries of Catholic life--assessing how Catholics can keep their heads above water in the sea of immorality that confronts them in the world, how they can be patriotic even though their true country is not in this world, and how they might reconcile their duties as citizens with their commitment to God--From publisher description
Doing well & doing good : the challenge to the Christian capitalist by Richard John Neuhaus( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For too long, Neuhaus argues, Christianity has had nothing to say to Wall Street or to Main Street. Drawing on the writings of Pope John Paul II, Neuhaus has written a spirituality of economic enterprise meant for the businessman and the intellectual alike
America against itself : moral vision and the public order by Richard John Neuhaus( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Partly autobiographical, slightly polemical, and thoroughly challenging, America Against Itself is an in-depth, multifaceted analysis of the pervasive cultural warfare that threatens to undermine the American social structure. Richard John Neuhaus, author of The Naked Public Square, employs a large measure of social criticism, moral philosophy, and religious reflection in analyzing this contemporary Kulturkampf. He addresses the limits and imperatives of politics as well as religion's role in defining our common culture. Among the subjects tackled are the abortion debate, the urban underclass, and the nature of altruism in a world that rewards uncaring. In addition, Neuhaus reflects on his role in "The Movement" of the 1960s, and how, despite its idealistic intentions, it went so wildly wrong." "America Against Itself is not a prolonged lamentation against the prevailing moral and intellectual decline that seems characteristic of the contemporary era. Instead, Neuhaus presents a careful and sympathetic analysis of why we have turned against the highest ideals of the American experiment, and issues a bracing call to turn anew to the challenging vision of "a new order for the ages."" "This book is a disturbing, but ultimately hopeful, testament from one of America's foremost public intellectuals, whose passage through three tumultuous decades proves a valuable qualification for probing the complex issue of conflicting moralities struggling to exist in a representative democracy."--BOOK JACKET
Death on a Friday afternoon : meditations on the last words of Jesus from the cross by Richard John Neuhaus( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Numerous writers and composers have been captivated by the suggestiveness of Jesus' Seven Last Words. But Richard John Neuhaus's sustained exploration of these utterances is something altogether different. Through them he plumbs the depths of human experience and sets forth the central narrative of Western civilization-the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ-in a way that engages the attention of believers, unbelievers, and those who are not sure what they believe. Death on a Friday Afternoon is an invitation to the reader into a spiritual and intellectual exploration of the dark side of human experience with the promise of light and life on the far side of darkness." -- from publisher's website
The eternal pity : reflections on dying( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing upon a vast range of human experience and reflection, The Eternal Pity: Reflections on Dying demonstrates how people try to cope with the inevitability of death. Different cultures, informed by religious beliefs and sometimes desperate hope, teach people to respond to their own death and the deaths of others in modes as various as defiance, stoic resignation, and unbridled grief. In addition to examples from literature, poetry, and religious texts, Father Richard John Neuhaus provides an intensely personal account of his encounter with death through emergency cancer surgery and reflects on how that encounter has changed the way he lives."--Jacket

7 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virtue, public and private :( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dialogue" is one of American religion's shopworn terms. Although there is much talk about dialogue, very little of it actually takes place. Religious discourse -- especially about politics and public affairs -- is increasingly polarized; there is much contestation, but little conversation. If truths are to be tested, however, there is no substitute for dialogue. Arising out of conferences sponsored by the Center on Religion & Society in New York City, the Encounter Series presents the dialogue of a diverse group of theologians, ethicists, philosophers, and public policy experts from across the political and religious spectrum. - Back cover
