From age four, Annette Cloutier had a profound interest in the Roman Catholic faith- nurtured by walking to Church every morning with her mother; coupled in the evenings being tutored in the Bible by her father upon his lap. The flavor of faith-filled joy lingered while studying Theology at Harvard Divinity School. Her theological interests were further courted by Vincent J. Mackaray, a prominent monsignor in Back Bay, Boston. Prey to God is the sensitive story of Annette's ultimate desire-to live and love God as a companion to a significant Roman Catholic priest. Told from the heart, this book is the touching memoir of a young Roman Catholic woman whose interest in God inspires her to fall in love with a man of the Church and develop a unique relationship over time.
Prey to God also recounts how the author's "trip through faith" stumbled along the way until a balance was achieved by her association with the monsignor and her studies in theology at Harvard. The recent rediscovery of the Jesus Family Tomb publicized in April 2007, the finding of the Herodian Tomb a month later, make for a fascinating historical interpretation by the author. Her profound interests in theology offer many interesting insights to religion in our current social climate which is sure to linger long after reading Prey to God is a fait accompli.
