Piers Paul Read
The famous British novelist and playwright Pier Paul Read presents his lively, thought-provoking reflections on wide ranging spiritual topics with his usual brilliance and insight. When this best-selling writer turns his attention to a subject he holds most dear, his Catholic faith, as well as religious and cultural issues of our times, he provokes delight and inspiration, as well as some fury and controversy. This illuminating volume presents a selection of Read's most elegant and memorable writings on subjects ranging from from Christians and Jews, liveration theology, and the DaVinci Code to sexual desire, saints and Pope Benedict XVI.
"What inspires these reflections is my sense of bafflement that the age-old teaching of the Catholic Church that serious sinners who die unrepentant will go to Hell, which seemed all important in my youth and preoccupied Catholics of my generation, has been forgotten." -Piers Paul Read
