Summary
In his new book, Saints & Sinners, Lawrence Wright takes us into the lives of six contemporary religious leaders through extensive interviews with them, with their adherents, and with their critics. A skeptical journalist seeking in part to learn something about his own beliefs, Wright sets out to explore the ways in which the struggle with faith has shaped each of these men and women. The six are:. Walker Railey, the ambitious rising star of Dallas's downtown Methodist church (which Wright attended as a child), who - at the pinnacle of his success, admired by his influential parishioners, and already spoken of as a potential bishop - was suspected of attempting to murder his wife
