Popular Catholicism in a World Church is the result of a three year project administered by the Maryknoll Center for Mission Study and Research in which a team of scholars investigated the faces of popular Catholicism in seven different locations and explored the variety of forms in which Catholicism presents itself. The result of their studies is indispensable reading for both Catholic and Protestant students of missions and inculturation.
