Summary:
"Cornwell probes beyond the statistics--the rising incidents of priestly pedophilia, the falling number of people attending church, the bizarre calculations behind the Vatican's saint-naming procedure--to reveal the everyday crises on the parish level: the dilemma of the gay or divorced Catholic who wants to remain in the Church; the forced hypocrisy on sexual conduct and abortion; the vexed role of women."--Jacket.
