"If you are a Baptist, read this book. Or a Lutheran, Episcopalian, Methodist, Presbyterian, or Whatever. Roman Catholics (of course) should read it. Day is writing about the culture of American Christianity and what it does to our understanding of God, self, and community - as reflected in the way Christians worship. Scathingly witty and relentlessly honest, his book is a bracing tonic. Be assured, you don't have to be a Catholic to enjoy, and learn from, Why Catholics Can't Sing!" - First Things
