Do you have what it takes to become a next-level Catholic hipster?
Building on the overwhelming popularity of The Catholic Hipster Handbook, Tommy Tighe is back with a new cast of fellow hipsters--including Haley Stewart, Samantha Povlock, Matthew Sewell, Fr. Damian Ferrence, and Patrick Neve--to share overlooked saints, forgotten prayers, and profound practices that define the countercultural Catholic lifestyle, inspiring you to live your faith in radical ways.
The Catholic Hipster Handbook successfully defined Catholic cool. In Catholic Hipster: The Next Level, editor Tommy Tighe and his squad of hipsters delve even deeper into the Church's countercultural 2,000-year history and kick it up a notch by helping you answer the call to act on your beliefs.
The book is divided into three parts that challenge you to live the theological virtues of faith, hope, and love. Each contributor introduces a forgotten saint and prayer and provides a suggestion for living the beautiful quirkiness of the Catholic faith. Topics include:
- bringing Catholic Twitter into the real world
- understanding Catholic feminism
- exploring third orders as extreme hipster Catholicism
- making a Flannery O'Connor pilgrimage
- looking at J. R. R. Tolkien as an early Catholic hipster
- debating praise and worship music versus traditional organ music
Covering the intellectual, practical, and intrinsically hipster, Catholic Hipster: The Next Level has something for everyone. Whether you want to be challenged, called to serve, or shown something new about your faith, you'll end up embracing all that's cool about Catholicism and having a more personal relationship with Christ and his Church.
