"Among the many books on clergy sex abuse this work of the anthropologist and theologian Gerald Arbuckle is without doubt the most helpful. . . . A book that must be meditated upon by the Vatican officers and all the bishops." -- Peter Phan, Georgetown University

Here is a timely book on the sex abuse crisis by a scholar who is adept at weaving insights from the social sciences into a framework of practical theology. Written for readers deeply concerned for the future of the church, this book addresses two questions: Why does the culture of the Catholic Church, despite Vatican II's emphasis on collegiality and transparency, still cover up abuses of power? How can this culture change in order to end abuse and heal the wounds it inflicts on the Body of Christ?
