A Tragic Grace is a direct, honest look at a difficult subject: child sexual abuse within the Roman Catholic Church. It includes the latest pastoral and psychological insights coupled with the author's original research. 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.
