I thought this book was pretty straightforward on the difficult subject of "the Mysteries," which are simple ideas hard to convey. The only thing that bugged me was starting off each chapter with pages of worldly ills. Some of the smaller chapters seemed to only hint at the topic in question.
Andrew Greeley was a Roman Catholic priest, sociologist, journalist, and author of 50 best-selling novels and more than 100 works of nonfiction. For decades, Greeley entertained readers with such popular characters as the mystery-solving priest Blackie Ryan and the fey, amateur sleuth Nuala Anne McGrail. His books typically center on Irish-American Roman Catholics living or working in Chicago.More about Andrew M. Greeley...
