Great!Jun 07, 2004
By Chem Guy
I really enjoy America Magazine. I just finished my first year at a Jesuit university. I participate actively in Campus Ministry and also advocate social justice initiatives. Often, I lack the time to keep up with the news, and rarely hear about less publicized social issues around the world. America really analyzes the world situation and presents on social issues both domestic and abroad. Additionally, the magazine speaks to current Catholic issues, including liturgy, beliefs, current events, literature, vocations, and upcoming Sunday readings. A family friend gave me a subscription as a high school graduation present. With no doubt in my mind, this is the best magazine I have ever subscribed to. Even if you are not Catholic, the magazine offers fantastic articles on world news and social issues.

Still offering top notch Catholic journalism with the typical scholarly Jesuit approachJun 14, 2007
By C. Scanlon
"least helpful reviewer"
A popular yet serious magazine with a long history supporting and guiding Catholic America, this magazine continues its historic commitment to excellence, orthodoxy and the full realm of Catholic dogma and beliefs.
America is a valuable and intelligent and prayerful addition to any truly Catholic household, offerd here at an affordable price. Great reading for all your family and sustenance for your soul upon our journey as Pilgrim Church. Let us get there all together in peace and in justice.
Read America first.

Thought-provoking theologyDec 29, 2010
America is a wonderful magazine. Each issue has articles about news throughout the Catholic Church, investigations into alleviating poverty in America and around the world, and invigorating perspectives on scripture. Some may say it's too "liberal" but I appreciate the Jesuit order as they've always appreciated an intelligent, contemplative approach to issues within and outside of the church. I've read other Catholic magazines, and none of them come close to the quality of the writing found in America.

New EditorJul 18, 2012
The magazine is introducing a new Editor. The outgoing Editor replaced an excellent Editor who understood that Catholics no longer receive their education from stained glass windows. Papal pressure forced him out. Perhaps the new Editor will return the magazine to a forum for discussion of philosophy and theology as they relate to the current human conditions.

Very SecularJan 31, 2009
This is another sad endeavor by the Jesuits. Ignatius of Loyola and the early Jesuits were fierce defenders of the Faith and the Holy Father. How times have changed. This magazine is more concerned with the secular realm and appeasing liberals than it is to spreading the Faith.
