Suffer the Little Children

For The New York Times, Janet Reitman reviews Mortal Sins, the new, “exhaustively researched” book from Michael D’Antonio. Reitman notes it’s hard to say anything new about the Catholic sex abuse scandals, but writes that D’Antonio’s book “adds a new dimension to the story, concentrating on the arduous legal battle to bring the church to account.” Though Reitman says the book could have used more editing, she still writes that the book is “perhaps the most comprehensive narrative of the abuse debacle to date.”
