This is the case study of a church as an institution, a community of faith, and as a family. It is the story of a pastor, of six women who risked a great deal to come forward and tell the secrets of their relationships with him, of the many players who knew and did nothing or who knew and did something, and of a congregation that was broken apart by the actions of its pastor. It is a story about ordinary, decent, well-meaning people faced with extraordinary circumstances. By Marie M. Fortune. HC with D/J. AN/NF. 167 pages. Harper and Row, Publishers: 1989.
