By Leila Marie Lawler (articles ) | Apr 14, 2008

Dearest readers of Off the Record and Catholic World News: I want to invite you to join the conversation about Phil’s book, The Faithful Departed, on a weblog designed to be user friendly and accessible to all.

Here we will keep you updated on Phil’s appearances and interviews, as well as give you links to reviews and commentary on the book. If you have mentioned Phil’s book on your site, please let us know there and we will link to you!

In addition, I’m sure that many of you have your own comments on his book – on the historical aspects, the scandal, and his treatment. We’d love to hear from you! Do you have questions you’d like to ask Phil? Experiences of your own to add? That’s what the blog is for! Phil will be engaging in conversation with all who stop by – it’s a great opportunity to share your thoughts.

Please bookmark the page and check frequently. We look forward to it!

    I read the book. I am now so shell shocked.... Even the recomendations at the end to try to salvage some of what is lost... Its the advise of the defeated. Its a great book, but the truth it tells so horrible is hard to grasp. How is the American Church to recover or get out of the hole it dug for itself? I guess, with God all is possible, but the whole corruption of the American Church is so entrenched. But where shall we go Lord?
