Father Andrew M. Greeley talks to Conversations
Tuesday, June 05, 2007  10:27:00 AM

by CONVERSATIONS MAGAZINE



Religion
Noone does it better when it comes to merging the worlds of religion, politics and sex into one explosive journey---and now the master of religious suspense talks exclusively to Conversations Book Club.


This is really bigger than can even be imagined: Conversations Book Club has been in direct contact with Father Andrew M. Greeley (author of PRIESTLY SINS, CARDINAL SINS, CARDINAL VIRTUES and WAGES OF SIN), and he has agreed to a LIVE ONE HOUR INTERVIEW with the book club later this year.


For those that don't realized the magnatude of this, Greeley's interview is the biggest thing we have done since the live discussion with International Bestselling author Andrew Neiderman (THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE and the ghostwriter for the famed V. C. Andrews novels).

Look for more details to be revealed in the next few weeks. The tentative date that has been set is Tuesday, September 18th, but due to his busy schedule, it is subject to change.

Below you will find a condensed bio of Father Andrew M. Greeley:
One of the most influential Catholic thinkers and writers of our time, priest, sociologist, author and journalist Father Andrew M. Greeley has built an international assemblage of devout fans over a career that spans five decades. He is the author of over 50 best-selling novels and more than 100 works of non-fiction and his writing has been translated into 12 languages. A Professor of Sociology at the University of Arizona and a Research Associate with the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago, Father Greeley is a respected scholar whose current research focuses on the Sociology of Religion.


In addition to scholarly studies and popular fiction, this prolific writer pens a weekly column that appears in the Chicago Sun-Times and other newspapers. He is also a frequent contributor to The New York Times, the National Catholic Reporter, America and Commonweal. Known for his mischievous Irish wit and trenchant commentary, Father Greeley is interviewed regularly on national radio and television. He has also authored hundreds of articles on sociological topics, ranging from school desegregation to elder sex to politics and the environment. His articles appear in a broad cross-section of scholarly publications.

In 1986, Father Greeley established a $1 million Catholic Inner-City School Fund, providing scholarships and financial support to schools in the Chicago Archdiocese with a minority student body of more than 50 percent. In 1984, he contributed a $1 million endowment to establish a chair in Roman Catholic Studies at the University of Chicago. He also funds an annual lecture series, “The Church in Society,” at St. Mary of the Lake Seminary, Mundelein, Illinois, from which he received his S.T.L. in 1954.
Father Greeley has received many honors and awards, including honorary degrees from the National University of Ireland at Galway, the University of Arizona and Bard College. A Chicago native, he earned his M.A. in 1961 and his PhD in 1962 from the University of Chicago. He is a penetrating student of popular culture who is deeply engaged with the world around him.
