Review quote

"[Has] the same narrative excitement as Woodward and Bernstein's All the President's Men. There is even a mystery whistle-blower, equivalent to Deep Throat, whom Berry dubs "Chalice" and who meets a sorry fate in the denouement." -- The Nation "Berry is the rare investigative reporter whose scholarship, compassion, and ability to write with the poetic power of Robert Penn Warren are in perfect balance... [T]he church itself could not have asked for a more fair-minded instrument of its own indictment." -- USA Today "Lead Us Not into Temptation is frequently as compelling as a novel, but it is also a thoughtful, restrained examination of an explosive subject that in less skilled hands could easily have been exploited and sensationalized." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer ADVANCE PRAISE "The greatest scandal in the history of religion in America." -- From the foreword by Andrew M.
