Publisher's Summary

This is the life story of Father Bob Maguire - a rare behind-the-scenes look at the much-loved 'people's priest'.

The enigmatic champion of the down-and-out was shaped by a lonely childhood in poor circumstances, an early priesthood that collided with the upheaval of Vatican II and working with the army during the Vietnam War.

This is a lively portrait of the man behind the resilient social activist and popular media performer who refuses to be defeated by enforced retirement from the parish over which he presided for nearly 40 years.

Brilliant!

Love Bob. Love the book. Only sorry that it doesn’t include an anthology of Bob’s sermons
