Joseph Bernardin : Seeking Common Ground Paperback
Part of the People of God series
As a priest, archbishop, and president of the US bishops' conference, Cardinal Joseph Bernardin lived a ministry marked by thoughtfulness, compassion, and conviction.
Relying on interviews with the cardinal's assistants, friends, and family members, as well as on some previously unavailable archival material, Steven P.
Millies explores Bernardin's controversial "seamless garment" approach to life issues, his founding of the Catholic Common Ground Initiative, the disturbing abuse allegations against him that were later recanted, and his experience of cancer that prompted him to write the bestselling book The Gift of Peace and that ultimately took his life.
Millies offers a fresh new portrait of one of the most remarkable Catholic leaders of the twentieth century.
