Item Description...
In this searing and soul-searching book, Bill Bausch considers the current crisis of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. With candor and honesty, he seeks out the facts, analyzes the current climate, and gauges the reactions of ordinary people in parishes across the United States. Bausch deals with topics such as celibacy, homosexuality, seminary training, the hierarchy and the reaction of the media to the scandal. He is open and unbiased in his evaluations, respecting both the position of the Church and the feelings of Catholic people. There are questions for reflection at the end of each chapter, enabling readers to use this book for group discussion or personal reflection. There is also a question and answer section at the end of the book that considers some of the more common questions rising from the sexual abuse scandal. Finally, there is a homily that can be used in a parish setting or at a general meeting to initiate group discussion. Bill Bausch has long had his finger on the pulse of the contemporary Church, and this book is no exception. Breaking Trust: A Priest Looks At The Scandal Of Sexual Abuse will help readers across the board to understand and deal with this crisis in the Church.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tired and Tiring Promotion of Contraception  Jul 21, 2007
In spite of its title, this book - ultimately - has far more to say about the agenda of Father William Bausch, than it does about "the Scandal of Sexual Abuse." Offensively, Father Bausch even seems to take a certain pleasure in the scandal in which the Church finds herself....

"The strict hierarchy with priest over laity, bishop over priest, and pope over bishop is melting. This, perhaps, will be the ultimate casulaty of the scandal - and it's long overdue....As for Rome, she has let them [i.e., the laity] down too many times, especially on the birth control issue....they [i.e., the U.S. bishops] bowed to Rome's pressue not to discuss in any sympathetic way contraception, celibacy, or the ordination of women" (pp. 75 - 85).

Just looking at contraception, it's absolutely disheartening to find a priest so unappreciative of Paul VI's courageous stance - nearly 4 decades after the pope's "Humanae Vitae." A quick re-read of that document - particularly its warnings of family breakdown and coercive contraceptive policies adopted by governments - show Pope Paul VI to have been truly prophetic.

Father Bausch would do well to reacquaint himself with authentic Catholic teaching. In particular, I would suggest that he start with the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body.
An Unabashed Look at the Sexual Abuse Scandal  Jan 20, 2003
This short volume is designed to be used by groups to come together to face the abuse scandal in the Catholic Church, explore their anger, and reflect on their pain. Bausch presents an uncompromising look at the scandal in a balanced, yet stark portrayal. Written before the Dallas meeting of the bishops, this is a marvelous toold for small group reflection on the situation.
