Sin against the Innocents: Sexual Abuse by Priests and the Role of the Catholic Church (Psychology, Religion, and Spirituality)

Experts from a variety of fields join forces to show us what fuels a most horrific violation of trust–sexual abuse by priests–and how the church and church structure play a role in this abuse. This riveting work includes chapters by a former Director of the premiere U.S. facility treating clergy who are sexual offenders, by a Jesuit psychologist who authored the largest study of clergy sexual abusers ever completed, and from a Vatican correspondent explaining the issues as seen by the Vatican. This text also includes an opening chapter by Michael Rezendes, a Boston Globe investigative reporter and member of the Spotlight Team that won the Pulitzer Prize for breaking the story of sexual abuse by clergy. A statement by the Executive Director of SNAP, the national support group for victims of clergy sexual abuse, is also included.Experts from a variety of fields join forces to show us what fuels a most horrific violation of trust–sexual abuse by priests–and how the church and church structure play a role in this abuse.
