The disclosures by victims and survivors of the sexual abuse they have experienced at the hands of faith leaders has shaken the foundations of our faith communities and has given us the opportunity to address this long-standing evil in our midst. Tracy J. Trothen has produced a thorough and thoughtful rendering of the history of Canadian faith communities confronting the sexual abuse of children. Her multi-faith approach adds depth to the discussion, allowing the reader to compare and contrast. We need this historical, multi-faith perspective to inform our current efforts and to learn from the past as we face the future. A very valuable contribution to the field.''--Rev. Dr. Marie M.
