Author Interview

Parish Priest is the definitive biography of Father Michael J. McGivney, a post-Civil War era priest and founder of the Knights of Columbus whose cause for sainthood is under consideration by the Vatican.

New York Times best-selling author and historian Douglas Brinkley and noted historical writer Julie Fenster teamed with a major publisher, the William Morrow division of HarperCollins, to bring the previously little-known life of Father McGivney to readers.

In a broader context, Parish Priest also gives fresh a introspection on the prevailing culture of the United States in the late 19th century and the struggle that Catholic immigrants endured in their new way of life.

Parish Priest is a must-read for Knights of Columbus as well as for those who have interest in religious history and culture.
