An autobiography of
a very human priest

An autobiography of a very human priest.

Dale Fushek presents a candid, flesh and blood portrait of the sacred and the profane in his life as an ordained priest. The good, the bad, and the unbelievable are described with gratitude and commitment to a larger purpose. Unflinching yet always dignified, Dale Fushek gives his reaction to the events that sent his personal ministry into chaos, and changed the very fabric of his existence.

Dale Fushek was interviewed recently by Pat McMahon, host of "The God Show" on KTAR radio FM 92.3. Listen to the full podcast (42 min) here:
