Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Berry's book put a national spotlight on the issue of clergy sex abuse of children.

Synopsis:

Winner of a Religious Public Relations Council Wilbur Award and a Catholic Press Association Book Award

Jason Berry's Lead Us Not into Temptation put a national spotlight on the issue of clergy sex abuse of children and has been used in newsrooms across the country. Berry takes us through the lives of traumatized victims and their parents, torn by loyalty to the church, into the machinations of bishops and church lawyers. At root, this is a story about politics, how sexual conflicts within clerical culture have compromised the power structure of the church. This new paperback edition of Berry's investigation includes an updated introduction that takes the scandal into the Vatican.
