In his quintessential biography of Father Edward J. Flanagan, author Father Clifford Stevens paints an insightful, inspirational and enlightening portrait of the man who founded Boys Town and led a cultural revolution that forever changed the way children were viewed, valued, and cared for in society. Father Flanagan was a complex human being, greatly influenced by his upbringing in a loving, close-knit family, and by the countless teachers, priests, relatives, friends, and recipients of his kindness who guided and nurtured his life's journey.
Father Stevens, a former Boys Town youth who knew the legendary priest, captures those experiences - the milestone moments that made the man - to create a compelling story of Father Flanagan's 61 years on earth. 414 pgs.
