Illinois Connection

After studies at Archbishop Quigley Preparatory Seminary in Chicago, Greeley received an AB from St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Chicago in 1950, a Bachelor of Sacred Theology (STB) in 1952, and a Licentiate of Sacred Theology (STL) in 1954, when he was ordained. From 1954 to 1964 he served as an assistant pastor at Christ the King parish in Chicago, during which time he studied sociology at the University of Chicago. He received a Master of Arts in 1961 and then a PhD in 1962. His doctoral dissertation dealt with the influence of religion on the career plans of 1961 college graduates. At various times Greeley was a professor at the University of Arizona, the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Chicago.

Biographical and Professional Information

Father Greeley's first work of fiction to become a major commercial success was ''The Cardinal Sins'' (1981). He then put out the Passover trilogy: ''Thy Brother's Wife'' (1982), ''Ascent into Hell'' (1983), and ''Lord of the Dance'' (1984). After that, he wrote on average a minimum of two novels per year. In 1987 alone he produced four novels and two works of non-fiction.

Income generated from the sale of his books has been used to fund certain philanthropies. In 1986, Greeley established a $1 million Catholic inner-city School Fund, providing scholarships and financial support to schools in the Chicago Archdiocese with a minority student body of more than 50%. In 1984, he contributed a $1 million financial endowment to establish a chair in Roman Catholic Studies at the University of Chicago.

He also funded an annual lecture series, “The Church in Society”, at St. Mary of the Lake Seminary, Mundelein, Illinois, where he earned his S.T.L. in 1954.

In the hustle of modern technology it might seem odd to discover an angel surfing the Internet, but what an interesting paradox that would be. Here, in Andrew M. Greeley's fine tale of young love and faith, Toby Tobin considers the peculiar terms of his great-uncle's will. Ten million dollars, a required visit to Ireland, ending a Tobin family feud, and a request to court his eighth cousin once removed, Sara Elizabeth Anne Tobin. No wonder Toby is a bit wary. But, he cannot help staring at the picture of Sara with her gorgeous black hair, blue eyes and pale skin. He logs onto the Internet to find out about airline tickets to Ireland and finds himself chatting with an odd travel agent named Raphael. Or Raphaela you might say. She is a angel who decided to surf the net to find out what humans are up to. She will be his guardian angel on his trip to Ireland. It's a good thing because Toby is in for the meeting of his life, a centuries-old mystery and more. His tart-tongued angel friend proves the perfect travel companion in a tale fresh as the Internet and as classic as the sweetest love stories ever told.

They find themselves dodging multiple explosions, and someone starts shooting at Nuala while she is water-skiing in the cold Atlantic. Meanwhile, the handsome parish priest, Father Jack, has given Dermot the diary of a young Chicago newspaperman. Written in the year 1882, the diary tells in horrendous detail an intriguing story of a mass murder and a trumped-up trial in which one of Ireland's greatest heroes was accused of the murders without a shred of evidence. These two stories, ancient and modern, soon get mixed up, and they make for an utterly fascinating tale of murder, betrayal, and redemption, with Nuala and her magical powers at the center of it all. -p.4 of cover.

Jesus of Galilee taught through stories, which even today contain the power to startle us out of our prejudices and preconceptions. Now Father Andrew M. Greeley, one of America's most beloved storytellers, examines the parables told by Jesus in search of a fuller understanding of the man and his message. This engaging and informal collection of homilies reveals a Jesus whose simple parables carry profound lessons about the Kingdom of Heaven. Along the way, Father Greeley touches on such provocative topics as the significance of Jesus's Jewish roots, his deep and revolutionary relationship with women, The Da Vinci Code, and The Passion of the Christ. He also singles out the four greatest parables, which best illustrate the infinite love and mercy of the God whose kingdom began with Jesus and continues even today.

A classic tale by one of America's most beloved storytellers. High in the cold skies above China, Daniel Farrell flew alone, a spy pilot on secret surveillance. It was to be his last mission. ... When the news of his loss was reported to his family, the rich and influential Farrells of Chicago, they mourned him and let the years bury what was too painful to face ... until a granddaughter's innocent school assignment threatened to expose the family's hidden skeletons. The Farrells had worked their way up from poverty to become the owners of a Chicago construction empire. But behind the facade of piety and public service, the family hid a shocking private scandal. There was a reason they had never insisted on a full investigation of the disappearance of Danny Farrell. ... With a master storyteller's skill, Andrew M. Greeley disentangles the web of deception to reveal the souls of men and women ravaged by love and hate and the struggle for success.

Thurston House is the most lavish mansion that the richest man in California could build in the 1880s ... the largest house that San Francisco's exclusive Nob Hill has ever seen ... and a living palace of love built for one woman: Camille. Enchanting, raven-haired and fiery, she is the all-consuming passion that Jeremiah Thurston has found in the autumn of his life. When she leaves him, bored by his love for his mines, by his endless hours of hard work, Thurston House becomes an empty monument to lost hopes and vanished dreams-lifeless but for one small person. Sabrina, child of that love, grows up believing her mother is dead. Her only legacy from Camille is the legendary beauty; in all other ways, Sabrina is her father's image: willful, headstrong and loyal to his passion for the land and his work. Suddenly, at 18, her life changed with his death, she makes the fateful decision to rule Thurston Mines. Against her, waiting for any sign of weakness, is a powerful enemy: John Harte, the man who hoped to take her father's place, a man who will profit if she fails. Armed only with her sharp wit and sheer courage, Sabrina is determined to succeed. Then, one day, she and John find they can no longer compete, for she has seen the warm heart beneath his fierce independence, and he has fallen in love with the woman emerging from the indomitable little girl. Yet their love and marriage-like her father's before her-will not stand untested. In a sweeping narrative that moves from the epic earthquake of 1906 to the harsh Depression years, from the glitter of society to the danger of the mine shafts, Sabrina must face the cycles of birth and death, hardship and triumph. Even when her past threatens to destroy her future, she will persevere. Because, above all, Sabrina will not rest until Thurston House is the home it was meant to be, a home filled with love and laughter.--Page 2 and 3 of cover.

Bestselling author of A Midwinter's Tale returns with a heartfelt sequel Father Andrew M. Greeley returns to the saga of the O'Malley family with his signature blend of humor, classic American values and heart-rending storytelling. Charles Chucky Cronin has come home to Chicago in one piece after a chaotic tour in post WWII Germany. And though his family thinks he's become a man, Chucky knows he still has a lot of growing up to do. Anxious to attend Notre Dame and get his life back on in order, Chucky is quickly sidetracked by the beautiful, raven-haired, haunting (and haunted) Rosemarie, a girl as fresh-faced and clever as she is doomed. Conflicts with a mob boss and a tendency to ruffle the feathers of those in charge combine to land Chucky in even more hot water. Luckily, a quick wit and an old fashioned sense of right and wrong (along with a dose of Heavenly help) save him when tensions reach the boiling point. Can Chucky come of age in a difficult and heady time, holding on to his integrity while discovering the secret to love' At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.
