Articles from the National Catholic Reporter
Tim Unsworth

Written by Tim Unsworth

Paperback book -- 168 pages -- ACTA Publications -- May 2008

Collected for the first time, Tim Unsworth: Articles from the National Catholic Reporter showcases 27 of Unsworth's best and most beloved writings. Sometimes searing, sometimes deeply sympathetic — always funny — his sacred irreverence touched millions of readers.

Although he focused on major issues in the Catholic Church, Unsworth wrote in a familiar style that never lost sight of his intended readership — the active laity who fill the pews every Sunday. Sometimes inflammatory but always expressed with a great deal of faith and common sense, his articles asked important questions such as:

  • Is celibacy robbing us of the priests we want?
  • Has limbo outlived its usefulness?
  • Is the seminary system outdated?
  • Have church ushers become merely "greeters"?
  • Will conservatives and liberals ever agree?

Every generation has its storytellers. For a quarter century, Tim Unsworth was one of the finest catholic writers ever produced by the rich and varied tradition of Chicago's Catholic church.

Chicago-native TIM UNSWORTH was the author of five books. His essays and articles appeared in The National Catholic Reporter, U.S. Catholic, America, Liguorian, The Critic, and many other publications.
