Most of us see things as they are. James Carroll sees things as they should be. The former Catholic priest turned Boston Globe columnist and best-selling author of "Constantine's Sword" and "American Requiem." cuts through the clutter of news headlines and gets to the heart of matters.
He asks the tough questions: the human toll of the war in Iraq; the disparity between rich and poor exposed by Hurricane Katrina; the Catholic Church's bungling of the clergy sex abuse scandal, and more.
Hear a conversation with James Carroll about peace on earth and the moral tenor of our times.
James Carroll, essayist, novelist, and regular contributor to The Boston Globe.
