About this Item

Scalamonti, a lecturer and writer, offers an account of his spiritual odyssey as a young American Catholic priest who, having lost faith in his birth religion, becomes an Orthodox Jew. Scalamonti candidly describes his seminary training, eventual ordination, and growing disillusionment with the theology, teachings, and practices of his church. This ultimately leads to a loss of faith and a departure from the priesthood. Once out in the secular world, he is introduced to Orthodox Judaism through an Orthodox Jewish woman and her family, and he converts after much soul-searching. While definitely not a diatribe against Catholicism, this is a revealing memoir of an individual who finds spiritual truth not in his ancestral religion but in the parent faith from which it sprang. This moving ac count will interest Jew and gentile alike. - Robert A. Silver, Shaker Heights P.L., Ohio Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. Bookseller Inventory # 047468
