MONAGHAN, A LIFE
Pizza mogul, sports owner, billionaire, devout Catholic, university founder, philanthropist. These are just a few of the many words that describe Tom Monaghan. Joseph Pearce traces Monaghan's life story from "the gutter to the stars" and, with his own deep knowledge of and devotion to Catholicism, is able to tell it in such a way that the reader will realize and appreciate that, despite missteps along the way, the subject is a man whose greatest desire is not to be among "the stars", but rather among the saints in heaven at the end of his earthly pilgrimage. Hardcover. 280 pages.
