Item Description...
"This is a timely and compelling book. Paul Dokecki rightly begins his search into the church's sexual crisis in his own diocese, with careful first-hand research, and builds from there. His mastery of the literature and media coverage is impressive. His conclusions envision a church fulfilling the promise of Vatican II. Bishops, cardinals, and leaders of the Roman Curia would do well to read this book. So, indeed, would the Pope." -- Jason Berry, author of LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION: CATHOLIC PRIESTS AND THE SEXUAL ABUSE OF CHILDREN, and coauthor of VOWS OF SILENCE: THE ABUSE OF POWER IN THE PAPACY OF JOHN PAUL II.

"Dokecki chronicles the devastating delinquencies of the priest-pedophilia crisis; and he maps necessary steps the Church must take toward credibility and integrity. He takes his readers from the shadowy secrets of the chancery to a Church illumined by the wisdom of God's people. Clear prose and a clean proposal. Anyone looking for solutions to the pedophilia crisis ought to read this book." -- Edward Vacek, S.J., professor of moral theology, Weston Jesuit School of Theology, and author of LOVE, HUMAN AND DIVINE: THE HEART OF CHRISTIAN ETHICS.

The story of sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests has sent shock waves around the nation and will not fade from consciousness or the news. We ask, "How could this happen?" And then we ask, "How could the Catholic Church let this continue for so long--in seeming silence and duplicity?" Paul R. Dokecki, a community psychologist at Vanderbilt, an active Catholic, and a former board member of the National Catholic Education Association, examines the crisis not only with the eye of an investigative reporter, but with the analytical skills and training of a psychologist as well. Moreover, he lays the foundation for reasonable and practical reform measures--toward a greater transparency, a more open and participatory governance in the church, and for a greatly expanded role for the people of God who make up the church. It is in this way, Dokecki believes, the church will be able to keep the innocent children of the church safe from harm.
