Having read Hare and Peck in depth I found Stone's work to be an excellent contribution to the study of evil. His book is painfully thorough and it is sometimes difficult to listen to the matter-of-fact rendition of some truly awful crime. I don't recommend this book to people of a melancholy disposition as it will certainly leave you feeling depressed. I'll be buying the print edition to refer to in my further reading.

This book's title might suggest that it takes a negative approach but I didn't find this to be the case. I thought that Lawler provided a loving and well constructed assessment of the Church's current state. Solutions are put forward to address the shortfalls of our leaders without condemning them completely. I found it a good read and I pray that I have the strength to follow at least a few of Lawler's recommendations.

A very well written and told story of an important and sad part of Australia’s past. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it and clearly remember the events it described. It changed my mind about life sentences.
