Routledge, London, 2016. 186 pages. isbn: 9781138572386.Jayeel Serrano Cornelio’s book is an analysis and reflection on his research on the Roman Catholic identity of university students in the Philippines. The book arises out of his Doctoral research while at the National University of Singapore and postdoctoral work at Lancaster University. It is based on qualitative research and locates itself in the social science / practical theology literature that utilises similar methodologies to seek to understand the theology and religious identity of particular groups of young people.1It also locates itself within the literature of world Christianity which, as he notes, largely ignores the beliefs of young people.Being Catholic in the Philippines seeks to identify what being Catholic means to university students within the Philippines. His research demonstrates that Catholic identity is flourishing among the young people who participate in Catholic campus organisations but this is often different from the understanding of the institutional church. He nuances these differences and develops a theory of individualism that is strongly connected to the institutional church. The young people have reinterpreted their faith and yet understand themselves to be deeply loyal to that faith even when they rarely attend Mass or regularly attend Protestant
