    READ The Dark Path ô PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Dark PathIf I was Catholic I would want to be a Jesuit; they seem to be the most pretentious of all the Catholic congregations Not that I would want to be a priest as I’m married but for David Schickler the desire to be a priest was a driving force in his life The Dark Path is a memoir of Schickler’s struggle between a call to priesthood and his attraction to women A memoir that explores his faith sex and the internal conflict The Dark Path is a funny and boldly honest look at his struggleI grew up in a strict religious home though not Catholic but I really connected with The Dark Path Growing up my parents were ministers and I often felt the pre

    READ The Dark Path ô PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Dark PathDavid Schickler author and co creator of the ever so dark Banshee series writes a very readable memoir describing his efforts to determine his path priesthood vs teacherauthor He retells stories from his youth and blend them well providing a picture of how his experience mold him into his college years His college years were pretty epic I'm kinda jealous but again Schickler very deftly shows how his actionsdecisions molded what comes next He continues in this vein throughout the book leaving the reader with an understanding of his path and the costspayoffs for everything he has done The description of the other characters in the book are ever so believable and full I found his descriptions and ideas regarding God and mental illness were pretty uniue and extremely thought provokingFor those of you who do decide to read this there is a passage when David is about 25 comes home for a visit and his sister sets him up with a girlfriend who was very meek in h

    READ The Dark Path ô PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Dark PathI was impressed with author David Schickler's ability to write about such an intensely personal subject managing to be both forthright and insightful at once It deals with his struggle to hear God's voice and so know his true life path and culminates in an identity crisis when he finally recognizes that he will never become a priest as he had long thought since childhood The inner self talk running throughout the course of the narrative captures his conflicted state remarkably well I found it an easy story to relate to and written in a way that kept up my interest to the end I'd rate it somewhere between 4 and 5 stars
