THE OLD CATHOLIC CHURCH aims at informing and inspiring its readers to reflect and entertain the theological richness of the Old Catholic churches of the Union of Utrecht, a Catholic tradition that is unknown and misunderstood by many in North America. Caruso presents much more than a mere history book about Old Catholicism by focusing on its historical origins to better explain the eucharistic nature of the local catholic Church; to which he simultaneously highlights some of the real struggles faced by Independent Old Catholics in North America with regard to this trinitarian and eucharistic understanding of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.
At last there is a new and good book in English that deals with both the history and the theology of Old Catholicism! —Rev. Rickard Stenberg, Priest and Theologian from the Old Catholic Church of Sweden (Union of Utrecht)
