- Pries, Novelist, and Professor of Social Science, University of Chicago
One of the most influential Catholic thinkers and writers of our time, priest, sociologist, author and journalist Father Andrew M. Greeley has built an international assemblage of devout fans over a career that spans five decades. He is the author of over 50 best-selling novels and more than 100 works of non-fiction and his writing has been translated into 12 languages. A Professor of Sociology at the University of Arizona and a Research Associate with the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago, Father Greeley is a respected scholar whose current research focuses on the Sociology of Religion.
This “Renaissance Priest” celebrates 50 years as a priest in Spring 2004. That is when three of his new books will be released. They are: The Catholic Revolution: New Wine in Old Wineskins, and the Second Vatican Council (University of California Press)--an analysis of sociological and moral issues facing the Church and priesthood in 2004; Priests: A Calling in Crisis (University of Chicago Press)—a statistical and subjective examination of the priesthood; and a much-anticipated novel, The Priestly Sins (Tor)—which spotlights the powerful forces arrayed against an idealistic priest after he witnesses and reports child abuse by a fellow-priest.
