the Catholic bishops during what she calls a “new era” in which the laity is

Paraview Press’ new release, Catholics at
a Crossroads: Coverup, Crisis, and Cure, is already generating
attention. Author Eileen Flynn will speak at the
Spirituality Convocation at the College of St. Elizabeth in Morristown,
N.J., on April 5. In Crossroads, Flynn examines the recent sex abuse scandal
that rocked the church, as well as how the institution and parishioners can move
forward and heal. Jason Berry, author of Lead Us Not Into Temptation,
said of the book, “Flynn is asking hard questions, the kind that cloud the
thoughts of many a Catholic. All theologians should be so brave.”
Frank Keating, former governor of Oklahoma, and Chair of the American Bishops'
Advisory Panel for the new national Office for Child and Youth Protection said,
"Eileen Flynn charges church leaders to create and 'sustain genuine religious
communities.' Her book is a call for a return to humility, a renewed piety and
joins the discussion over what ails and what heals our contemporary faith."

January 2003 Paraview
Literary Agency’s new agent, Karrie Coburn, is a former woodworker and
furniture maker whose story proves that when one door closes, another one opens.
She first thought of getting into agenting while recovering from a work-related
injury to her hand. During her downtime, she read a manuscript that her husband,
Tristram Coburn, had brought home from his job as an acquisitions editor for
International Marine/McGraw-Hill. His company could not publish the novel, and
without an agent, Karrie feared that this wonderful author’s story might never
be read. Karrie knew that she was inextricably tied to this wonderful industry
and had to act. As a member of the Paraview team, Karrie is looking forward to
bringing many wonderful novels to eager readers.
