Description

This is a comprehensive and even-handed examination of the "clergy abuse crisis". Jenkins dissects the underlying causes of the general perception of an epidemic of abuse. He finds that, although abuse exists, the extent of the problem has been grossly overstated, and the Church wrongly stigmatized for complicity.show more
