ABOUT THE BOOK
The church has played a significant role in helping to bring down authoritarian regimes in Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Philippines. Once the dictator is gone, however, does the church have a role to play in the building or rebuilding of a democratic political system? Father Moreno opens up this question with an interesting discussion on the theoretical level. He then examines two cases, the Dioceses of Malaybalay and Bacolod in the Philippines, developing a useful framework for analysis and arriving at the notion of engaged citizenship as the primary contribution of the church to democratization in a postauthoritarian situation. John J. Carroll, SJ, Ph.D. Senior Research Associate, Institute on Church and Social Issues
In the wake of the Hello Garci scandal that hounded the Arroyo presidency, many Christians missed the mode of political engagement and leadership the late Cardinal Sin had exhibited in response to pressing socio-political issues. This book, while focused on the post-Marcos dictatorship period before the scandal erupted, provides enlightenment on the historical/ecclesial factors that led to shifts in the Catholic churchs role in the democratization process in the Philippines. Agnes M. Brazal, STD, Maryhill School of Theology
This book represents the gold standard for research on the role of the Roman Catholic church in Philippine society and politics. All who are interested in democratization and the Catholic church, both within and outside the Philippines, will want to read Antonio Moreno's book.Robert Youngblood, Arizona State University
