Agony in the Garden: Sex, Lies and Redemption from the Troubled Heart of the American Catholic Church (Nation Books) by John Van Der Zee

A monsignor, convicted of molestation, is imprisoned; a priest flees the country after repeated molestation charges; another commits suicide. A former priest and youth ministry leader is charged with rape and committing lewd acts against minors in a series of complaints dating back several decades. A charismatic Bishop resigns amid charges of sexual harassment and coercion brought by a priest who had himself been dismissed after being accused of stealing from church collections, and after a long career as a con artist. Welcome to the Catholic diocese of Santa Rosa, California.... In this powerful and compelling work, John van der Zee tells the story of Bishop George Patrick Ziemanns tortured relationship with con artist priest Father Jorge Hume Salas, the ensuing sexual and financial scandal that, ironically, thanks to a popular insurgency by rank and file Santa Rosa Catholics, enabled the diocese and the church to revitalize itself.
