In 1984 Marie M. Fortune accepted a call to serve as an advocate and pastor for six women bringing charges of sexual misconduct against their pastor, Dr. Peter Donovan. This book tells the story of that assignment. Donovan's behavior was extreme, but the dynamics that allowed it to happen are sadly typical. The author claims these events resemble more than 50 other situations she has investigated. But is the church prepared to act when questions arise involving the morality of a gifted or popular public figure? That is the challenge this book deals with. It deserves a reading by every administrator who, in cases of possible sexual abuse, seeks to deal fairly with all parties: the accused, the accusers, and the church whose reputation we want to protect.
