What happens when those we trust most commit the most
egregious acts of b betrayal? It's a scandal that has sent
shockwaves throughout the world. Sexual abuse committed in
the place where we-and our children-should be safe: the
church. As three bishops stand trial in Federal Court,
charged with conspiracy for protecting abusive priests,
prosecutor William Goulding and defense attorney James
Kobs prepare for the trial of a lifetime. As Goulding
presents a litany of damning evidence, Kobs is forced to
take an unorthodox route. But Kobs' toughest battle will
be persuading the jury. From expert testimony about power,
aristocracy, narcissism, and addiction, to the innermost
thoughts of the trial's spectators and participants, this
extraordinary courtroom drama unfolds as Kobs presents his
startling case. An intelligent, provocative story about
power and human nature, The Purple Culture is not a book
about shame, guilt, finger-pointing, or lurid details.
Part legal thriller, part psychological drama, The Purple
Culture demystifies the majestic and intriguing traditions
of the Roman Catholic faith.
