As you can see from our homepage, the latest issue of Commonweal is up online. I have to agree with Fr. Imbelli, who called it "rich and varied" -- there's something for everyone in the July 17 issue. In fact, we've decided to make the entire issue available online, to subscribers and nonsubscribers alike. That means you can read everything you see in the table of contents without signing in, from Alice McDermott's short story "I Am Awake" (our first published fiction in many years) to Jack Miles's article "After 'the War on Terror'" to William L. Portier's review of Rembert Weakland's memoir, A Pilgrim in a Pilgrim Church. (We'll try to call attention to individual articles here on the blog in the coming days, and put them up for discussion, as Fr. Imbelli has done with Sidney Callahan's article below.)Enjoy! And please pass on the links to your friends, colleagues, enemies -- anyone who's not already reading Commonweal. This month there are no excuses for missing out.
Mollie Wilson O’Reilly is editor-at-large and columnist at Commonweal.
