The Cardinal Sins ignited a worldwide sensation when it first appeared nearly thirty years ago. Selling more than three million copies, it launched Andrew M. Greeley's career as one of America's most popular storytellers. Back in print at last, this powerful saga of ambition, temptation, and love both spiritual and carnal is as timely and provocative as ever.

Lifelong friends and occasional rivals, Kevin Brennan and Patrick Donahue enter seminary together, but their lives soon diverge dramatically. Intellectual and independent, Kevin achieves success as a scholar but often finds himself at odds with his superiors in the Church. And his unwavering principles threaten to cut him off from those closest to him―including the former sweetheart he has never forgotten.

By contrast, the ambitious Patrick rises steadily through the Church hierarchy, only to fall prey to the temptations of lust and power. As hidden scandals and Patrick's inner demons threaten to destroy the lives of everyone around him, it's up to his oldest friend to save him from himself―and foil a conspiracy that could change the very future of the Papacy!

An Andrew Greeley book which allows us incite into the workings of the Catholic Church & young men's decisions as to whether or not they have a true calling to the priesthood.
It also shows us the struggles that priest go through, from the beginning of their schooling, throughout their careers. We are also give an open & honest view of the things that took place in the priesthood & the Catholic Church during the period of time in which this book takes place & how the church for years worked to cover them up.
Once again a great book which gives an interesting view into the Catholic Church.
  • Gravelblade
For myself, who has lived within the institution (with some years of hiatus) for over three quarters of a century, this was a very affecting book. My only objection would be that the sudden violence which jolts the plot along and gives it poignancy at several points seems a bit contrived. The joy and pain is more often experienced in "real life" in a much more gradual fashion, though with occasional crises. Ah, but it ain't over till it's over!
  • Vijora
Ho Hum book, though I believe it was a scandal when it was published
  • Angana
This is the 1st novel I ever read at age 16. Now at 54, had to get a hold of my own copy!!!
  • Tetaian
Very entertaining and provocative as the author mixes desire with boundaries that get broken.
  • Gri
I enjoyed this book because it was goo entertainment. Andrew Greeley creates characters that the reader can relate to and care about. His work carries a spiritual under tone that makes it significant both as entertainment and spiritually motivation. I do not believe that Andrew Greeley is "great writer", but he is very good at what he sets out to do.
  • Neol
I wonder how much of the story is factual. I wouldn't be surprised if the story parallels reality.
This book brings out a host of questions as well as answers to how and why
some people in authority become caught up in their own agenda.
