Father Joe: The Man Who Saved My Soul by Tony Hendra
At age 14, Tony Hendra was having an affair with a married woman when her husband dragged him off to see a Benedectine monk on the Isle of Wight, Father Joe. This was the beginning of a lifelong friendship for the two. Tony Hendra became a successful humorist and satirist (he was one of the founders of National Lampoon) and drifted away from the church into a lifestyle of sex and drugs. Father Joe's calm demeanor and wisdom helped bring Hendra back to the church and to an understanding that the only sin was one of selfishness. Father Joe has received many glowing reviews with the Philadelphia Inquirer saying, "Hendra's book is so funny at times that you wonder if you'll ever get through it for laughing. At other times, it truly brings a lump to the throat and a tear to the eye. It is splendidly crafted and a welcome reminder that what true religion is about is learning how to love."
