Summary (From the publisher):

Those who know his novels, Father Greeley asserts, may be the ones who know him best, because he puts all of himself into the novels; he can't help it. And all of a man like Father Greeley, who for more than half a century has been a successful journalist, novelist, sociologist, and priest, results in something truly extraordinary.

Picking up where his acclaimed Confessions of Parish Priest left off, this memoir has something for everyone: whether you're already a fan of his fiction, and want to know more about how he writes his books, or you are interested in an extremely sharp and insightful first-hand look into the Church's turbulent and controversial times in the latter half of this century. His keen journalistic eye has been closely observing the world around him and his native charm, wit, and insight makes it a pleasure to join this remarkable man as he reflects on some of the major issues that have led him into the volatile world of church politics and the glaring light of media attention. Always on the side of compassion, understanding, and honesty, Father Greeley admits that sometimes he finds himself unable to keep quiet.

Introspective, jovial, somber, playful, Father Greeley's charismatic personality shines through in all of its many facets as he examines his life and times. And running through all his observations is the positive undercurrent, familiar to his millions of readers, that God is Love, Understanding, and Forgiveness.
