Boston College Administrator’s Book Wins Award From Catholic Press Association
Chestnut Hill, Mass. (August 2011) – Love One Another: Catholic Reflections on How to Sustain Marriages Today (The Crossroad Publishing Company), a book co-edited by Boston College Assistant to the Vice President for University Mission & Ministry Tim Muldoon, has received an award from the Catholic Press Association (CPA). Love One Another received a third place prize in the book category Family Life.
Part of Boston College’s award-winning Church in the 21st Century (C21) Book Series, Love One Another contains essays that offer a look at the challenges facing married Catholics today, but also at the resources from Christian tradition that can help couples and families forge a long and satisfying relationship with one another, with children, and with the communities of the church and society. Cynthia S. Dobrzynski served as co-editor.
Of the book, the CPA wrote, “The essays in this book offer a hopeful look at the difficulties facing those who are married and those who are considering marriage. New ways of reflecting on the Catholic tradition provide insights to couples facing modern-day marital challenges.”
This marks the fifth CPA recognition for the C21 Book Series. Previously honored titles are: Prophetic Witness: Catholic Women's Strategies for Reform; Handing on the Faith: The Church’s Mission and Challenge; Sexuality and the US Catholic Church, and Voices of the Faithful: Loyal Catholics Striving for Change.
CPA award winners were announced last month during the 2011 Catholic Media Convention in Pittsburgh. The contest, a project of the Catholic Press Association of the United States and Canada, recognizes outstanding works in books, newspapers, magazines, websites and newsletters and in Spanish language publications.
