If your faith could confess, what would it tell you?
It’s us, the devout, who are expected to confess to our pastors. But what if our faith could, in turn, confess its darker secrets to us?
A silent dialogue between a businessman and a priest takes place against the backdrop of a papal address humming through the Vatican plaza, questioning uncomfortable truths of the Catholic faith and exploring what really goes on in the minds of the devout… of any faith.
A work of fiction written in the breathless “thought-stream” style pioneered by the author, Czech-born writer Birgitte Rasine, “Confession” pulls you into its racing pulse and doesn’t let go even after you’ve read the last word. It breaks through the established walls of the practice of confession in Christianity and brings to light questions about faith and religion that remain debated to this day.
Originally written in 2001 but unpublished until now, “Confession” is finally making its debut in print and as an eBook in both English and Spanish.
