Books about Catholic Priests

J. P. Keogh
The list author says: "After some twenty years in the controversial Legionaries of Christ, working with the now disgraced founder, Marcial Maciel, many moons later I decided to write a memoir about my experience. These are some of the books that crossed my path as I wrote "Driving Straight on Crooked Lines: How an Irishman found his heart and nearly lost his mind""
Driving Straight on Crooked Lines: How an Irishman Found His Heart and Nearly Lost His Mind
Driving Straight on Crooked Lines: How an Irishman Found His Heart and Nearly Lost His Mind
"An inspiring autobiography by Jack Keogh. Often moving, frequently funny, entertaining, and always memorable. It covers 20 years of his life from adolescence in Dublin - to adulthood in the Mexican Legion of Christ, with the founder, Marcial Maciel. It is a gripping, heartwarming, & inspiring page turner. I'm biased because I wrote it!"
Vows of Silence: The Abuse of Power in the Papacy of John Paul II
Vows of Silence: The Abuse of Power in the Papacy of John Paul II
"The seminal book which first revealed the dark side of the founder of the Legionaries of Christ."
Our Father, who art in bed: A Naive and Sentimental Dubliner in the Legion of Christ
Our Father, who art in bed: A Naive and Sentimental Dubliner in the Legion of Christ
"The first book about the Legion of Christ experience written by a former Irish Legionary. It reveals the passion, anger and deep hurt caused by Fr. Marcial Maciel, the founder."
Sex, Priests, and Secret Codes: The Catholic Church's 2,000 Year Paper Trail of Sexual Abuse
Sex, Priests, and Secret Codes: The Catholic Church's 2,000 Year Paper Trail of Sexual Abuse
"Reads like The DaVinci Code, except that this well-documented book is not fictional."
A Long Way from Tipperary : What a Former Monk Discovered in His Search for the Truth
A Long Way from Tipperary : What a Former Monk Discovered in His Search for the Truth
"This is quite an intellectual memoir chronicling the journey of an ex-Monk, theologian. Irishman Crossan, based on his life-long study of the historical Jesus asks himself: "How did I get here? What brought me to this point in my career?""
Shattered Vows
Shattered Vows
"Gut wrenching and candid assessment of the exodus of thousands of men from the priesthood. It's based on author (former Irish priest) interviews. It's not anti-Church but it's a cry from the heart to re-examine underlying causes. I cried my way through every page."
