Winner of the Catholic Press Association's 1995 Book Award for History/Biography, Merriman's perceptive study examines the development of Dorothy Day's spirituality and astutely relates it to twentieth-century intellectual and cultural history.

"In Searching for Christ Brigid Merriman presents a fascinating and comprehensive exploration of the spiritual influences that shaped Dorothy Day's conversions, the spiritual influences that inspired the founding of the Catholic Worker, and the individuals and movements that sustained her ongoing spiritual growth as she lived her prophetic call throughout this century. Not only does this work add significant depth to our understanding of one of the most influential Catholics of the twentieth century, it also offers unique insights into the history of the North American Catholic response to social injustice". -- Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., Theological Studies

"With scholarly acumen Merriman explores the wellsprings of Day's indefatigable spirit and shows the reader the deepest motivations for Day's priorities and life concerns. This is a work of distinguished scholarship -- nuanced, sophisticated, and challenging". -- Frank J. Houdek, S.J., University of California at Berkeley
