Poor Souls by John William McMullen


Title: Poor Souls
Author: John William McMullen
Publisher: Whiskey Creek Press
ISBN: 9781593747160
Genre: Fiction

Have you ever wondered what life was like behind the scenes of the priesthood, how they, as men, thought and reacted to ideas and events within the realm of the church? Have you ever wondered why a young man becomes a priest and what his education is like?

If you enjoy a tale about ordinary men who take on the daunting task of trying to live a life inside a set of rules that most of us would find too restrictive, Poor Souls by talented author John William McMullen is just the story for you.

A study of one man trying to walk the political tightrope among the conflicting lines of thinking and dogma, an introduction to the variety of personalities attracted to the life of a priest and how they "get the call". This is a well written story that any reader will enjoy as something different.

I'm pleased to recommend Poor Souls as a tale that will open your eyes to how human priests are and the issues they face in dealing with the heirarchy of the ancient organization they have willingly dedicated their lives too. This is a story well worth anyone's time. Enjoy. I did.
