In the In Depth Analysis section, you'll find an extensive review of Sharon Davies’ outstanding new book Rising Road: A TrueTale of Love, Race, and Religion in America, published in early 2010 by Oxford University Press. Rising Road describes the murder of Fr. James Coyle in Birmingham, Alabama in 1921 and the subsequent trial of the murderer, a Methodist minister named Edwin Stephenson. Highly recommended. See The Murder of a Priest.
