A strength of the volume lies in the way that several authors seek self-consciously to address the longing on the part of many persons for a world of meaning in which a good death, as well as a good life, is at least a conceptual possibility.

All centers of power present the potential for unhealthy souls to do serious damage.  This small book explains important ideas about what to do and how the church should respond to effectively confront the contradiction of Christ’s Love expressed through clergy sexual misconduct.
