Bob Drinan

The Controversial Life of the First Catholic Priest Elected to Congress

Raymond A. Schroth

A Fordham University Press Publication

Raymond Schroth's Bob Drinan: The Controversial Life of the First Catholic Priest Elected to Congress shows that the contentious mixture of religion and politics in this country is nothing new. Four decades ago, Father Robert Drinan, the fiery Jesuit priest from Massachusetts, not only demonstrated against the Vietnam War, he ran for Congress as an antiwar candidate and won, going on to serve for 10 years. Schroth has delved through magazine and newspaper articles and various archives and has interviewed dozens of those who knew Drinan to bring us a life-sized portrait.
