THE TRUTH AT THE HEART OF THE LIE
Hear James Carroll‘s deeply personal exploration of what has broken the modern Catholic Church as chronicled in The Truth At The Heart Of The Lie, the most recent in his canon of books critiquing the blessings and limitations of Catholic Christianity.
A former priest himself, Carroll peers into the shadows of deceit and corruption that have shaken his belief system, unearthing the awful truth hidden in the human failings, sins and betrayals of the Church’s hierarchy of bishops and priests. Carroll contends that the Catholic Church and its clergy are at a critical tipping point. Can it and they yet be saved?
