A Faith for Grown-Ups: A Midlife Conversation about What Really Matters

by Robert P. Lockwood


Approximately thirty percent of baby boomers were baptized and raised Catholic. After years of practicing a religion that seemed dry and rigid, many ìboomersî drifted away from the faith. A Faith for Grown-Ups reintroduces Catholicism to those seeking to reconnect with their faith. With wit and keen understanding, Lockwood explores the common experience of growing up Catholic from the 1950s through the 1970s and invites disconnected Catholics to encounter a faith for grown-ups.Writing from an adult perspective for an adult audience, Lockwood covers all the major aspects of Catholicism and offers practical suggestions for cultivating an adult faith. In personal stories, both humorous and heartrending, Lockwood traces his personal pilgrimage from the Catholicism of his childhood to the rich, meaningful spirituality of his adulthood.
