HURTING IN THE CHURCH
A WAY FORWARD FOR WOUNDED CATHOLICS. Author Fr. Thomas Berg shares the painful crisis he, himself, lived in the Church. A moral theologian and philosopher, he provides a psychologically-wise and spiritually-profound path for Catholics who have been abused, traumatized, or wounded by other Catholics (especially by Church leaders.) Chapter 10 on how to recover one's belief in and love for the Church is worth the price of the book--alone. Read this unflinching examination of the Church's brokenness, along with practical advice on healing, forgiving, protecting children and victims of sex abuse. Paperback. 208 pages.
