Growth and Decline: Essays on Philippine Church History

The essays gathered into this volume deal primarily with the inner development of Catholicism in the Philippines. Nonetheless, they inevitably also speak of the development of the Filipino people. For whatever one’s religious beliefs may be, and whatever evaluation one may make of the role of Catholicism in the development of Filipino people, it remains a historical and cultural reality that has given shape to the nation and that makes it unique among the other cultures and histories of Southeast Asia.— From the Introduction.
