About-

Father Luke’s Journey into Darkness shows the struggles of a fictional parish in Washington, DC, when their parishioner, Father Luke, fights against another priest who is trying to sexually abuse a child. The novel captures the difficulties and drama of alerting Catholic and legal authorities before the Catholic sexual abuse crisis was widely known. Father Luke joins with other priests to get the attention of the Vatican and police to stop abuse of a child. On the way to seeking help, Father Luke turns to Ignatius of Loyola and others to seek wisdom and discernment.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Showing herself to be a skilled storyteller, Dr. James delves into the sensitive and controversial area of clergy abuse. In her capable hands, fiction is shown to be an effective way to approach some of the complex questions. . . . Caught up in the drama of her story, we are impelled to deal with the issues not so much in scientific, clinical ways (as important as those are), but in the manner they present themselves in the actual world: as events that shape and direct the lives of real people.”

—from the Foreword by William Bradley Roberts, DMA, Virginia Theological Seminary (Episcopal), Alexandria, Virginia
