Three Cheers for the Paraclete
by Thomas Keneally

 

People matter, their feelings, their joys and sorrows matter.

These principles, plus his belief in his own small book The Meaning of God, set young Father James Maitland at odds with his superiors and his Bishop.

In a church which sees religious truth as fixed and immutable, Maitland cannot help but become embroiled in a conflict which threatens to destroy him as a priest and as a man. His efforts to help Egan, the canon lawyer who asks for release from his vows of celibacy, and Hurst, the student who is slowly going mad, and his attempts to speak to his own generation, only lead to further trouble.
