On God's Side: A Life of George Tyrrell

Synopsis

The second biography to be written since Tyrrell's death in 1906, this compelling new work outlines the religious upbringing and development of thought that led first to Tyrrell becoming a Jesuit and then to his excommunication by the Roman Catholic Church. Recounting the theological debates of the day, Sagovsky paints a vivid portrait of Tyrrell as a man of compassion and mordant wit, a man who was admired by his friends, yet feared by his enemies.
