Phyllis Theroux spoke about her book, The Good Bishop: The Life of Walter F. Sullivan, at Politics & Prose on Sunday, May 19, 2013.
Appointed Bishop of the Richmond diocese by Pope Paul VI, Walter F. Sullivan held the office for twenty-nine years. In her detailed account of Sullivan’s life and work, Theroux evokes a warm and humble man, determined to foster social justice by taking a stand against the death penalty, reaching out to the gay community, and making himself a model of compassion.
