It documents this "sustained crisis" in the Church and offers concrete suggestions on how to understand and deal with the subject. Most importantly, A Tragic Grace offers a vision of hope. Within the seeds of this tragedy, the author sees the possibility of a stronger, more open, and accountable Church emerging."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
