Andrew Greeley, author: prolific

May 31, 2013 | By Jim Stovall | No Comments | Filed in: Home.

One word describes author Andrew Greeley, who died this week in Chicago: prolific. He wrote novels, sociological research, religious analyses and screeds (in the best sense of the word), newspaper columns, and many other forms. The sum of his writings is that he loved the human intellect and loved life itself.

Update: A New York Times editor praises the stand Greeley took against the Catholic Church hierarchy in covering up the abuse of children by priests.
