(2 customer reviews)

$9.95

He does it for family – he does it for faith. He does it to accommodate the obsession with women that pervades his every thought – The Altar Boy is the story of the young supplicant who enters the priesthood only to become a function of the name he is called and the collar he wears. Everything else is a lie, or a regret. Father Dante has created his own purgatory, trapped by his cloistered soul and riven with guilt because – even when all his sins are accounted for – he doesn’t feel guilty enough.

    Intriguing and Riveting

    Great twist on religion responsibilities for someone entering the priesthood. Being catholic brought back some good childhood experiences with my parish/church.

    The Altar Boy is a true to life coming-of-age story. Carl Sanders grew up in the 1960s in a Catholic household. The Catholic Church was revered in those days, and so were its clergymen, but for Carl and his family, a priest brought nothing but pain.
