George Weigel’s Evangelical Catholicism Earns Award from Polish Association of Catholic Editors

April 30, 2015


The Polish Association of Catholic Editors has given the Polish edition of George Weigel’s Evangelical Catholicism: Deep Reform in the Twenty-First Church its 2015 Phoenix Award in the category “Book by a Foreign Author.”

According to the award citation (click here to view), “The author, in a novel way, examines the most important achievements of the pontificate of John Paul II and skillfully surveys the most important cultural currents of our time. Weigel suggests that, in the face of the challenges of European secularization, neither frightened traditionalism nor Catholic progressivism is what is required. Rather, what is needed is an ‘Evangelical Catholicism’ that transcends culturally-transmitted religiosity and begins from a personal encounter with Jesus Christ and deep friendship with him.”
