In Mysterious Ways: The Death and Life of a Parish Priest by Paul Wilkes

Originally published to extraordinary acclaim, selected by the Book-of-the-Month Club, and the winner of the Christopher Medal, In Mysterious Ways is widely recognized as one of the best books about Catholicism today -- a modern-day Diary of a Country Priest. Paul Wilkes paints an intimate and affecting portrait of Father Joseph Greer, the pastor of St. Patricks Church in Natick, Massachusetts, as he struggles with a terminal case of bone marrow cancer. Even as it depicts the pastors harrowing fight to live, In Mysterious Ways is ultimately an uplifting story of transcendence. As we watch him overcome his own pain, it is impossible not to admire and learn from Father Greer, who is certainly no saint but rather, as Wilkes makes clear, an ordinary person like anyone else. In Mysterious Ways offers a powerful vision of fortitude, leadership, and the limitless capabilities of a strong human spirit.
