Overview

‘A hugely enjoyable, eccentric account of clerical heroism in the face of evil.’ Observer

‘Comedy and tragedy run side by side... Bracing and lively.’ The Times

‘An admiring study of priests and ministers who have put their lives on the line.’ BBC History Magazine

Who says you can't fight fascism in a cassock?
Wherever fascism has taken root, it has met with resistance. From taking a bullet for a frightened schoolgirl in Alabama to saving Greek Jews from extermination by way of fake IDs, each of the fifteen hard-drinking, chain-smoking clerics featured in this book were willing to risk their lives for what they believed.
