The sexual abuse scandal has wreaked havoc on the Catholic Church for the past thirty years.
This diabolical toxicity has jeopardized the Church's work in every way and ruined the lives of countless innocent people.
"Why should I stay?" many Catholics understandably ask. Why not abandon this sinking ship before it engulfs me or my children?"
In this stirring manifesto, Bishop Robert Barron, founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries and Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, explains why this is not the time to leave, but the time to stay and fight.
Reading the current crisis through the lenses of Scripture and Church history, Bishop Barron shows that we have faced such egregious scandals before; that the spiritual treasures of the Church were preserved by holy men and women who recommitted themselves to fighting evil; and that there is a clear path forward for us today.
For Catholics questioning their faith, searching desperately for encouragement and hope, this book will offer reasons to stay and fight for the Body of Christ. This book will prove the importance of fighting for our faith despite the abundance of wolves hidden among the shepherds.
