"Thomas Plante has edited the most comprehensive and penetrating analysis of the clergy sexual abuse scandal to date. The authors make an important contribution to our understanding of the causes, dynamics, and clerical systems that both spawned and sustained this Sin against the Innocents."-Donald Cozzens, Visiting Professor of Religious Studies, John Carroll University and author of Sacred Silence: Denial and the Crisis in the Church

Book Description

Experts from a variety of fields join forces to show what fuels sexual abuse by priests—and how the Church and church structure play a role in this abuse.
