The issue of the Collins statement reveals another problem with Suffer the Children. It relies almost exclusively on coverage as it appeared in The Globe and Mail, which immediately narrowed the scope of a major aspect of the book: how the media covered the crisis.

Synopsis

In this book, Michael W. Higgins and Peter Kavanagh - respected for their impeccable research as well as their knowledge of all things Catholic - have produced the definitive critical look at how clerical abuse has wreaked havoc on the credibility of the Catholic Church in Canada.

The authors go well beyond simply chronicling the issue and its players. They also carefully scrutinize how the media have both reported on and influenced the crisis.

Higgins and Kavanagh ask tough questions about what the church has and hasn't done. yet they do so with compassion and deep respect and love for the institution of the Church, seeking always to learn how we can truly serve the mission of Christ on earth.
